Holiday Memorial Candle Lighting Ceremony

McNary-Moore Funeral Service invites the community to share in its 14th annual Holiday Memorial Candle Lighting Ceremony beginning at 6:30 PM, Tuesday, December 8 at 107 5th St. in Colusa.

“The upcoming days hold many expectations, emotions and experiences for those of us on a journey through grief,” stated Verdo Werre, McNary-Moore Funeral Service Manager. “Stepping away from the busy activity of these winter holidays to honor a loved one may bring peace and comfort.”

Family and friends who have lost a loved one are invited to attend the ceremony, lasting approximately one hour, in which local clergy will address the attendees before families come forward in the chapel with a decorated candle to indicate and honor the person they have lost.

“The holidays are some of the most difficult times of grief, I believe,” Werre said, who has more than 30 years’ experience in the industry. “This event helps people remember the memories of their loved ones.”

While anyone is welcome to attend, McNary-Moore especially sends out invitations to families who have lost loved ones in the last two years.

“We want people to know our (professional) services don’t end when the funeral ceremony is finished,” Werre said. “Our services are perpetual.”

The firm inaugurated the Holiday Memorial Candle Lighting Ceremony fourteen years ago in conjunction with their grief counseling services as a way to help families grieve their loss. Through the company’s Web site, families dealing with loss are able to tap into interactive videos on coping with grief, grief counseling, and sign up for daily e-mail affirmations and join in group grief support.

“Grief is a private thing,” Werre said. “A lot of times people do like to communicate about what they are feeling, and this way they may do so from the privacy of their homes.”

McNary-Moore facilitates around 150 families per year.
