Free Grief Group to Support our Community

We have organized a grief group that is available to anyone feeling they would benefit from it. It is led by Devonne Carter. This group meets the first Monday of each month at the Funeral Home.  You do not need an appointment.

Many times we find ourselves after the loss of a loved one with many unanswered questions and feelings that we just don’t understand. Grief is a process and must be experienced and moved through for us to completely heal from our loss. It is evident that needing a little help through this process is very commonplace by the number of grief groups that have been organized to help us. Many people utilize these groups and have received a great deal of help and created many new friendships as well.

Grief books and pamphlets are available to you at our office. Please contact us if we can help.

Other grief groups are located throughout the Edmond and Oklahoma City metro area. We have listed a few below, but there are many others who can help. If in doubt contact your local health care professional.

If you feel you could use a little help, don’t hesitate any longer. Get in contact with a group today.

tragedy assistance program for survivors

Kids Joining Eternity is a nonprofit started by Melanie Edwards and her husband, JB Edwards.

“We are just one of many in our community who have experienced the loss of a baby. The Celtic symbol was chosen as our logo because in its purest form, it stands for eternal life.  The spiral stands for growth, eternal life and movement.  The whirls of the spiral stand for continuous growth and the gaps between the spirals stand for the gaps between life, death and rebirth.

More importantly, Kids Joining Eternity is a group of professionals, colleagues, moms, dads, sisters, brothers, volunteers, neighbors, family members and friends who have come together to help those who have suffered the loss of a child. It is not the act of one or two individuals, but many who help get aid to those who need it.
