Kern Funeral Home provides a monthly luncheon for those seeking support and insight following a loss. The luncheons are free of charge. All are invited including those not served by Kern. They are traditionally held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 12 noon in the Social Hall at Kern Funeral Home, 1122 S. 3rd St, Mount Vernon.
The programs range on a wide variety of topics, such as
- Financial and legal concerns following a death,
- Nutrition and physical activities after a loss,
- Further ways to receive support from friends and family,
- Signs and practices of healthy grief.
We have a group for men who have experienced a significant loss, and these meetings are held on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 10 AM in the Social Hall. This is a coffee group that shares some of the pains as well as some of the growth experienced as a man who has experienced a loss.
We also have a group for women who have experienced a significant loss. These meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of the month at 10 AM in the Social Hall.
These groups are open to all who have experienced a loss. For further information or details, please contact me.
