Gallant-Riverview Funeral Home will host its Annual Christmas Remembrance Service on Thursday, Dec. 5, at 6:30 p.m., for all those who have lost a loved one this year.

The holidays can be a particularly difficult time to cope with the loss of a loved one. It is Gallant-Riverview Funeral Home’s hope that its Annual Christmas Remembrance Service will provide a comforting setting in which families can come together to express their grief and to find peace during the holiday season.

“Memories of good times and togetherness at the holiday season serve to remind us of how much our lives have been changed by the loss of our loved one,” said Brooke Gallant Fanning of Gallant-Riverview Funeral Home.

“Particularly in the first year, many families are left with having to develop new holiday rituals and traditions,” she added. “The remembrance service is a starting point for families to begin healing and to once again find joy in the Christmas season. It will be an evening of reflection and remembrance through inspiring words, special music, lighting of candles, refreshments and fellowship.”

The Annual Christmas Remembrance Service is open to all members of the community who have lost loved ones this year, and it is a gift from the funeral home to the community.
