Grief Support

Grief Resources

At Farrar Funeral Home we offer the following aftercare grief sessions:


These meet each Tuesday afternoon at 2 p.m. at the Jefferson City location. These are informal, small groups who meet and share with each other about their journey of grief and their path to recovery from losing a loved one. There is no charge for this and everyone is welcome. "Grief is too hard a journey to travel alone. You need others to walk alongside you to share the load." If you are interested, please let us know by e-mailing or calling us at 865-475-3892.
