We want to say “Thank You” to those who have entrusted the care of their loved ones to us this past year. Thank you so much for placing your faith and confidence in us.

The holiday season can be a difficult time of the year. The transition we must make after the loss of a loved one adds stress to our lives and we may find it hard to adjust. As we remember our loved ones there is nothing wrong with grieving, shedding tears, because it hurts inside. But grief can be devastating if we dwell only on it. Let me encourage you to remember the good times you have experienced – those trips you took, talks you had, even the small things you shared together, and cherish those things. Instead of ignoring your memories, find others with whom you   
  can share them.

In this season of remembering, we want to honor the life and memory of these special people who have passed on since this time last year:

My Memory Library

Imagine if I was given one moment, just a single slice of my past. I could hold it close forever, and that moment would always last.

I could choose a time of laughing, a time of happiness and fun.

I could choose a time that tried me through everything I’ve done.

I sat and thought about what moment would always make me smile. One that would always push me to walk that extra mile.

There are moments I can think of that would lift my spirits every time. The moments when you picked me up,

when the road was hard to climb.

For me to only pick one moment to cherish, save and keep

is proving really difficult, as I’ve gathered up a heap!

I’m building my own little library, embedded in my heart,

for all the moments spent with you before you had to part.

I can open it up whenever I like, pick a moment and watch it through, My little library acts as a promise

I’ll never ever forget you.
