Grief Support

Grief Resources

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

"CARRY EACH OTHER" GRIEF SUPPORT MEETINGS

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 sandra@farrarfuneralhome.com or calling us at 865-475-3892.

Online resources include discussion forums, educational tools, and a community for people who are dealing with grief. You may find one or more of the following websites to be helpful:
