Farris Funeral Service November Learning Series Focuses on Grief During the Holidays

Nov 13, 2017 | Farris Funeral Service

ABINGDON, Va. — As part of its 65th anniversary this year, Farris Funeral Service & Crematory will host the final installment of the Farris Funeral Service Learning Series at 6 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 20, 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.”

“When a loved one has died, the idea of facing the holidays can be overwhelming,” Farris-Luke says. “Feelings of anxiety, sadness, longing and loneliness can seem magnified, and events meant to bring families together are sometimes difficult to handle. This event provides attendees with methods for understanding and coping with these challenges, and helps them find hope in embracing what matters most during these special days.”

Admission to the event 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.
