Grief Support

Grief Support

The death of a loved one is a painful process causing intense emotions such as pain, fear, sadness, anger, and much more. Harper Funeral Home understands this and offers guidance throughout the grief support process. Beyond the funeral services, we are here to support you during this difficult time and always remember, you are not alone.

One of the most effective forms of grief support is through a support group. Grief support groups offer immense support and create friendships, help combat loneliness, offer a sense of normalcy, and foster an environment dedicated to sharing ideas and feelings. Many dealing with the loss of a loved one often ask, "What's next?" after the burial or cremation service, and a grief support group can help answer that question.

Members of bereavement groups report many positive impacts of group therapy like the knowledge of loss and acceptance, the ability to share one's feelings, and the feeling of being in a safe space.
