Every person grieves loss on his or her own terms.
We “understand” grief when we surrender our need to compare our grief to others' and our need to completely understand the reason of the death.
“Surrendering to the unknowable mystery is a courageous choice, an act of faith, a trust in God and in ourselves.” -Dr. Alan Wolfelt
We strive to be our community's resource for anything that will help family and friends work through the grief that comes with the death of someone we love.
We use training from Dr. Alan Wolfelt's Center For Loss and Life Transitions Center to facilitate various grief support groups at the Kempf Family Funeral and Cremation Services, Marshall.
Please contact Melanie Johnson, Bereavement Coordinator via email at Mjohnson@kempffh.com or via phone at 269-781-9858 to reserve your spot.
