Farris Funeral Service November Learning Series Offers Advice on Coping with Grief During the Holidays

ABINGDON, Va. — Farris Funeral Service & Crematory will host the fourth installment of its 2018 Learning Series at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 19, at the Forest Hills Chapel, located at 19415 Lee Highway in Abingdon, Virginia.

Kim Farris-Luke, president and owner of Abingdon-based Farris Funeral Service & Crematory, will present “Hope for the Holidays: A Conversation About Grief.”

“Memories of good times and togetherness during the holiday season often serve to remind us of our loss,” Farris-Luke says. “Particularly in the first year, many bereaved are left with having to develop new holiday rituals and traditions. While there is no right or wrong way to celebrate the holiday season after the death of a loved one, this event will provide attendees with insight into the grief process and tips for understanding and coping with these challenges.”

Admission is free-of-charge and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided, and each attendee will receive a keepsake and resource guide on dealing with grief during the holidays.

For more information or to RSVP, call (276) 623-2700 or email farrisdirector@gmail.com.
