"GRIEVING ALONE & TOGETHER"

"GRIEVING ALONE & TOGETHER"


This free e-booklet addresses the challenges of grieving the death of a loved one during the COVID-19 pandemic.  It also addresses the importance of talking to children about death and memorialization and the difficulties of being separated from a loved one at the time of their death. The guide offers guidance on how families can meaningfully celebrate the life of their loved one and discusses the importance of maintaining your health while grieving.

RIDGE FUNERAL HOME IS WORKING TO MAINTAIN A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR THE FAMILIES WE SERVE AND THOSE WHO MAY CHOOSE TO ATTEND A VISITATION OR SERVICE.  to that end, WE HAVE INSTITUTED THE FOLLOWING PRACTICES which will remain in effect until further notice:

FOR THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF EVERYONE,
 FACE MASK ARE REQUIRED.  


WE KINDLY MAKE THE FOLLOWING REQUEST OF FAMILY MEMBERS AND VISITORS:
