The focus of the program will be transforming grief for what has been lost into hope for what is yet to come. The event will include a brief program that will conclude with the release of live butterflies. Light refreshments will follow. This program is open to the public and everyone is welcome to attend. Anyone wishing to attend should call DeJong-Greaves by Monday July 25 th to reserve a complimentary butterfly to release at the program.
“This is a wonderful way to honor the memory of loved ones and to connect with others who are also grieving the loss of a loved one” says Dirk DeJong, who owns the funeral home with his wife, Terry DeJong. “It is a very moving memorial for those members of our community who want to find hope and comfort in the midst of their grief” adds Terry DeJong. Dirk and Terry are trained funeral celebrants and through that knowledge provide a sincere ceremony that acknowledges the profound loss that can be felt after someone dies.
