Grief Support

Grief Support

Haskell-Hott Funeral Homes have a commitment to the care of our families and community before, during and following a funeral. It is with that dedicated service that we extend personal and face to face follow-up and aftercare to assist those who mourn the loss of a loved one, and to educate the community about the process of grief.

Approximately one week after your loved one's service, we will follow up with you to answer any further questions you may have. The loss of a loved one comes with many details to be taken care of and we are here to assist you with working through that process.

We also have a grief library at our Princeville Chapel. We have a wide variety of books on loss, mourning and grief that you may check out and return when you are done with them. We also have free booklets available that are written by grief expert, Dr. Jason Troyer, founder of Mt. Hope Grief Services.

The following are some tools available to assist you in your healing journey. Contact us to discuss other resources and find a personalized solution to support you on the road to recovery.

By being open and honest, encouraging communication, and sharing your own feelings, you and your children can cope with painful times and begin your healing journey together.
