Coping with a holiday after a loss

Posted by Linda

For some, this will be the first holiday they “celebrate” without a family member, including us. Since many of our holiday traditions are centered around the family, holiday gatherings can be painful after the loss of a loved one.  Some people find it comforting to continue old traditions and others to change traditions. This is a personal decision how you choose to handle the holiday. We will try to focus on the happy memories we shared with Dad and Mom to help us cope as well as the hope that they are in a better place with the Lord who they served.  We will be sad, yes, but we also have learned to be at peace.  Our pain has served us to feel more compassionate to our families that come in to our business looking for a memorial for their loved one.  Lincoln Granite is a family business located in Clinton Township, Mi and is here to serve families in their time of need.  Our hope is to be different than our competitors by providing more personalized attention.  If you have recently lost someone special to you, please stop in and we would be happy to help you.
