Grief Support

The death of someone we care about can be one of the most difficult experiences of life. Words seem inadequate to describe how painful the grief we feel can be. It is often much more challenging than we expect and others seem to think.

At Chambers and Grubbs Funeral Homes, we are dedicated to continuing our commitment of care and offering support for our families after the funeral ceremony is over. We offer educational seminars and materials, referrals to grief recovery programs and counseling services, and complimentary consultations about funeral pre-planning and other matters.  We attempt to personally follow up with each family after your loved ones services have been held to assist in the overall mental, emotional, and financial welfare of the families we serve.  To find out more about grief assistance programs or  to receive free information  on how to better deal with your grief, please click on any of the links in this category or feel free to give us a call at (859) 344-5000.  

These articles were written by Dr Bill Webster, our Director of Grief Education, and are part of a comprehensive library available on our Grief Journey web portal. Dr Bill is the founder and Executive Director of the Centre for the Grief Journey. He earned his doctorate at the University of Toronto in 1990, and has been awarded the prestigious Fellow in Thanatology by the Association of Death Education and Counselling (ADEC).

Dr Bill's knowledge of grief is not just in theory, but from a very difficult personal experience. In 1983, Bill`s young wife died suddenly of a heart attack, leaving him not only to cope with his loss, but also to raise his 2 sons, who were only 9 and 7 when their mother died. Dr Bill has become a recognized author, a renowned international speaker and seminar leader, and brings 30 years of experience in the field of grief support and counselling.
