A Time to Remember…….
The holiday season can be a very difficult time for many people. Those who have experienced the loss of a loved one have the extra burden of grief. In an effort to lighten this burden, we extend an invitation to you, your family and friends, to join us for our 26th Holiday Memorial Service. This special program is designed to give comfort and strength during the Holiday Season.
Everyone is welcome to this community-wide gathering: The program includes live music, readings, a memorial slideshow presentation and a candle lighting ceremony.
As our gift to you, beautiful glass memorial globe ornament will be provided at the service. This clear, glass, memorial globe is specially designed to contain a picture of your loved one. We encourage you to place the globe on our Tree of Remembrance during the service. After the program, the ornament can be taken home and placed on your own tree.
There will be a hosted reception with holiday treats and refreshments following the service.
The first Holiday Memorial service was held in Cottage Grove in 1987. Doug Lund, former owner of Smith-Lund-Mills, had observed that the holiday season could be a challenging time for the members of our community who had experienced a loss in their lives. Doug was an early pioneer with the idea that people could benefit by coming together for strength and comfort during the holidays. Since 1987, the Holiday Memorial Service has become an annual tradition at Smith-Lund-Mills in Cottage Grove. Now in its 26th year, Marc Lund is proud to continue his father’s tradition of service to the community.
- We will have memorial pictures printed and available from the past 12 month for individuals we have served (if photo was provided at the time of arrangements). Feel free to bring a small picture if we do not currently have a photo on file, a poem, letter or some other small memento to place inside the ornament is also acceptable.
- One ornament per family will be provided. Additional ornaments can be purchased in advance or at the event for just $5 each.
