2014 Memorial Service

Mable W. Rodgers
Dear Friends:

As the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons approach, we naturally turn to happy thoughts of family gatherings and being with friends. These feelings contrast greatly with the sorrow we feel over the loss of someone dear to us. After the loss of a loved one, it’s not unusual to be apprehensive about the holidays, but it can be a time of remembering, reconnection, and hope for the days and years ahead.
In the spirit of the Christmas season, we would like to invite you, your family and friends to attend a special Remembrance Service in honor of those who have died and in support of those who still live. Please join us at the funeral home on Sunday, November 30th at 4:00 PM. Following the service you’re invited to stay for light refreshments and fellowship. Please let your other family members and friends know of the memorial service.
We will have a lighted memorial tree in our foyer until the New Year. An ornament will be provided that you and your family members can place on the tree in honor and memory of your loved one or you may take the ornament with you to place on your family tree.
RSVP’s are not required but please call us at (843) 355-6262 if you have any questions.
We hope you and your family and friends will join us.
