Grief Support

Hitzeman Funeral Home,  is proud to serve our community.  In the past we have hosted Grief Support Gatherings. Unfortunately since Covid, the interest for the program to continue is not present.

We know how losing a loved one affects the core of each family. Whether the passing is sudden or after a long battle with illness, each soul has a story. And everyone has their own way of coping with such a loss; sometimes, we don’t know how to start finding a way through the fog of emotions and despair.

 Grief Resources

After the death of a loved one we can experience a wide range of emotions. To help us manage, by default, we generally rely on family and friends. While family and friends are important, they may not always be equipped to provide what you need. This is when other resources available to grievers can be valuable. However, if you don’t know they exist, you won’t be able to utilize them.

There is a sacredness in tears.
They are not the mark of weakness, but of power.
They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues.
They are the messengers of overwhelming grief…and unspeakable love.

-Washington Irving


We are hoping to continue to offer pre-need seminars, hospice seminars,
holiday remembrance events and other gatherings. 

We have found that through these events we can make a difference
in the lives of the families that we serve.
