There is no greater pain in life than surviving the death of a loved one. Our prayers and thoughts are with you during this time. If there is anything we can do to further assist you please click here to contact us. Compassionate, caring funeral services do not end immediately after the funeral. Everyone experiences death differently. The emotions associated with the death of a family member or close friend can be extremely painful and sometimes overwhelming.
At Serenity Funeral Home and Blundon’s, we continue to help families through their bereavement even after the funeral. By maintaining strong relationships with local service organizations and agencies, we are able to refer people to counselors and support groups. We even offer free information on dealing with your grief along with these websites.
