Farris Funeral Service September Learning Series Answers Questions About Cremation

ABINGDON, Va. — As part of its 65th anniversary this year, Farris Funeral Service & Crematory will host the third installment of the Farris Funeral Service Learning Series at 7 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 25, 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, along with Mike Farris, general manager, will present “Cremation: Everything You Wanted to Know but Were Afraid to Ask,” with a question-and-answer session to follow.

The event is free of charge and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.

“We received a tremendous response from the community after hosting our first cremation seminar earlier this year,” Farris-Luke says. “Choosing cremation only indicates how you’d like to care for your loved one’s physical remains, and doesn’t exclude you from celebrating and honoring his or her life in any way. It is a personal choice with many options. This seminar will provide an opportunity for guests to voice any questions they may have so we can address their concerns.”

Farris Funeral Service & Crematory is the only funeral home in Washington County and Bristol, Virginia, with its own on-site crematory, and is the area’s exclusive provider of Cremation with Confidence™. Six members of the Farris team are certified professional crematory operators who have pledged to abide by the organization’s strict ethical code and perform an exclusive 10-step cremation process, providing greater peace of mind for families who prefer cremation.

The Farris Funeral Service Learning Series is held on a quarterly basis throughout 2017. The next event is scheduled to take place in November.

Farris Funeral Service Learning Series Begins March 28

ABINGDON, Va. — As part of its 65th anniversary this year, Farris Funeral Service & Crematory will host the first installment of the Farris Funeral Service Learning Series at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 28, at the Forest Hills Chapel, located at 19415 Lee Highway in Abingdon, Virginia.

Kim Farris-Luke, president and owner, and Mike Farris, general manager, both of Abingdon-based Farris Funeral Service & Crematory, will present “Cremation: Everything You Wanted to Know but Were Afraid to Ask,” with a question-and-answer session to follow.

Admission to the March 28 event is free of charge and open to the public. Refreshments, including dessert, coffee and water, will be provided.

“One of the most common misconceptions we often hear about cremation is that there cannot be a funeral service or visitation,” Farris-Luke says. “Cremation is an alternative to the traditional burial service and does not limit in any way how you choose to celebrate the life of your loved one. This seminar will give individuals the opportunity to voice any questions they may have so we can address their concerns.”
