Love and Memories
A group grief support program that Eggers offers to the community to provide a safe and nuturing environment to begin or continue the healing process...
In May 2009, Eggers launched a grief support group for bereaved families. It was their idea to hold monthly meetings for families that wished to come together and share their experiences with loss. Our group had humble beginnings and originally met for only one hour each month. Now, two years and much laughter later, our group still meets, though now for at least two hours a month.
It was decided at the outset that the ministry of Love and Memories would be one that was open to the community at large, regardless of when a death occurred or if the family chose Eggers at the time of need. We have served many families though this ministry and are delighted to include all those who might find comfort in our fellowship.
In our grief support group meetings, we learn that there is no one way to grieve and that everyone’s path is different in length and terrain. Knowing that many benefit from the encouragement of God’s Word, we have also turned to Scripture to find comfort and peace for our journey. More recently, individuals have been offering to take turns giving a devotional at our meetings.
In May 2011, we took our first excursion to The Blue Willow Inn in Social Circle, GA to have lunch and to shop at the nearby Tanger Outlets. Due to the success and fun of this trip, we are planning more in the future!
With our meetings, trips, holiday services, and fellowship dinners, one can see that Love and Memories has grown since its birth into a meaningful and sincere place to ease the burden of grief and sorrow in the wake of our loved one’s death.
Love and Memories meets the 4th Thursday of each month from 6:00-8:00 PM at Eggers Funeral Home in Boiling Springs.
