We are pleased to announce a new FREE online educational series!

This will be a FREE resource for our community. We believe strongly that a big part of our job is educating our community. We will be adding different topics for educational purposes.

Simply click to read the online version or call us at 618-542-2020 and we can drop you or your loved one off a FREE hard copy to read. If your organization can benefit from these booklets, just let us know! We would be happy to set up a free seminar for your organization. You can also email us at

The first in our education series is...




The guide addresses the challenges of grieving a loved one’s death during the COVID-19 pandemic, including the nature of grief; traumatic loss and its triggers; ambiguous losses; and the risk of disenfranchised grief. It also addresses the importance of talking to children about death and memorialization and the difficulties of being separated from a loved one at the time of their death. The guide offers guidance on how families can meaningfully celebrate the life of their loved ones and discuss the importance of maintaining your health while grieving.

We are so thankful for this opportunity we are able to bring to the community of Du Quoin and surrounding Perry County! We could not be more proud to announce we are teaming up with the uplifting Rev. Amanda Groves to bring FREE EDUCATIONAL GRIEF WORKSHOPS to the community.
