Christmas can be a lovely time of year. Who doesn’t like the decorations, gifts, food, and family? The Hunnaball Family wish you a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

However, we know that Christmas can also be a difficult time of year for everyone who has lost someone they love. Their absence seems somehow more pronounced at Christmas. We miss them. It doesn’t mean we don’t want to celebrate, it simply means that we also want to commemorate.

Grief Awareness

It is perhaps not surprising that December brings with it Grief Awareness Week, which ran from 2nd to 8th December. We hope that for those who marked the event it was a highly positive opportunity and that it carries over into Christmas as we talk about, honour, and remember the people we have lost and miss so profoundly. We’re very thankful that the old practice of maintaining a stiff upper lip is now consigned to the past and we can more healthily acknowledge our grief before moving positively and hopefully forward as our loved ones would have wished.

Name a Star

With that in mind, the Hunnaball Family Funeral Group invite you to join us in commemorating the people you miss most this Christmas. In every one of our branches there’s a special Christmas Tree. The purpose of the tree is to be decorated during the month of December with special stars dedicated to the memory of the ones we love and miss during the festive season.

All you have to do is contact or visit your local branch of the Hunnaball Family Funeral Group, and one of our fantastic team of compassionate professionals will help you dedicate a silver star and hang it on the tree in memorial. A simple action with profound meaning.

As the month progresses, your star will be joined by others, dedicated by bereaved families and friends, until the tree is covered in memories and thanksgiving.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Season’s Greetings

From all of our family to yours, we wish you the best possible greetings of the season. We continue to support and think of the people we serve, even as we give thanks for both the joys and sorrows we share, because they remind us about what’s important.

Happy Christmas.
