WOODRUFF - People who've experienced a loss in their family may find the holiday season difficult to handle.
Woodruff's Nimsgern Funeral Home held a ceremony on Saturday to try and help people heal.
This is the sixth year for the Holiday Remembrance program. A hospice coordinator spoke on ways to handle grief during the holiday season. Christmas music is also incorporated throughout the event.
What Nimsgern Funeral hopes people get from the event is simple.
"Just that they're not alone. That we understand the grief that they're experiencing and we try to get them to share it and just let them know there's support out there for them," said Funeral Director Jamie Nimsgern.
Towards the end of the ceremony, everyone lit a candle in memory of those they've lost.
The holiday remembrance program is open to everyone and it is typically held around the second Saturday of December every year.
