For the 28 consecutive year, Cooper Funeral Home will present its special memorial program, "A Christmas Keepsake."

The program will be held Sunday, December 8 at 2 p.m. in the Chapel of Cooper Funeral Home.

"We hope this special ceremony will offer comfort to the families we've served," J. Cooper said. "We want them to know we continue to care about the loved ones they've lost this year, as well as the grief they've encountered."

Getting through the holiday season is difficult for those suffering grief. The loss is felt most during the traditional tome of celebration.

By their nature, holidays are nostalgic. Even the happiest of memories are painful when we are grieving.

The Christmas Tree of Remembrance will be on display in the foyer of the funeral home during the month of December.

Families and friends are invited to come by the funeral home and visit the memorial.

The Tree stands with our Candle of Love, celebrating each of the live and paying tribute to these our friends and neighbors who died this year.

A special Scroll of Honor lists their names in chronological order beginning December 1, 2018 through November 30, 2019.

The name of each deceased loved ones will be engraved on a beautiful snowflake ornament.

At the conclusion of the program, the ornaments will be presented to the families the funeral home has served during the past year.
