As a free gift with all full-service funerals, we create a memorial collage with photos of your loved one throughout their life. Small keepsake collages are created as a hand-out for guests during the visitation or at the memorial service, if no visitation is selected. The 8 x 10 collage is placed in a frame and presented to the family after services are completed. All the family needs to provide are eight to ten color and/or black and white photos, which are returned in their original form.

An important personal resource is our Grief Support Groups, a six-week program, held twice per year, dedicated to those who have lost a loved one. This is a group discussion that allows families to learn how to heal their loss. Patricia DeJohn, M.A., also offers her specialized services through programs on grief, coping with loss, and death, as well as one-on-one counseling and Reiki through private sessions at DeJohn Funeral Homes & Crematory.

Providing For You After The Funeral
“How can I cope with my loss?”
Everyone faces personal loss, but not everyone deals with it in the same way. We may feel one way when the loss was long expected, and very different if a loved one is taken without warning. We are especially committed to providing ongoing services and support to those who have suffered a loss.
First, there is our extensive library of books, brochures, videos, and other resources that help explain the grieving process, and teach us how to heal from our grief. There is also information on explaining death to children, funeral etiquette, and other important issues.
For those who need additional support, we maintain close relationships with grief counselors, mental health professionals, and other community service agencies that provide additional care to the bereaved.
In addition, our commitment to community involvement makes us proud sponsors of educational programs for middle school and high school students, workshops that support bereaved families during the holidays, and various seminars dealing with life appreciation, grief, and other important issues.
Why do we devote so much time and effort to these activities? Because we care.
