The summer holiday season is just around the corner and traditionally we spend this time enjoying the company of family and friends.
However, each year there are many people who will face the holidays and Christmas for the first time since experiencing the passing of their loved one.
Regardless of our age grief can come to us in many forms and often the most difficult bereavement of all is the loss of a loved one. Grief can be a confusing experience for both the bereaved and those who are trying to comfort them – grieving people are often misunderstood because their world has been literally turned upside down.
Assisting families and individuals during these times is part of the support provided by the team at Tuckers Funeral and Bereavement Service.
In November of each year, Tuckers extend their Bereavement Care Program to the wider community by hosting a special Christmas memorial service.
A Time to Remember is aimed at helping those who have experienced grief and loss and to prepare for the Christmas period in particular.
Tuckers Bereavement Care Program has been a support network for the Geelong community since the late 1970s and this event, A Time to Remember, is an extension of that care.
“We are passionate about caring for our community, and that extends beyond the funeral service. Not everyone needs additional support, but it is something that can be requested by families as needed,” says Karen Thirlwell, Bereavement Care Consultant.
The A Time to Remember service will be held on the evening of Monday 25 November, from 6.45pm for a 7.00pm start at OneHope Centre, 4-32 Province Boulevard, Highton. The event is free to attend.
