Jackie the funeral home therapy dog
Experiencing loss and grief can be one of the most emotional, somber moments of life. Jackie, our beloved funeral home therapy dog, offers comfort to family and friends during this difficult time. Jackie’s steady and unwavering companionship helps to relieve stress and anxiety and provide a sense of consolation and calm to an otherwise stressful experience. Whether families are preparing to say their final farewells or going through the grief process after loss, Jackie is here to provide additional support and unconditional love when you need it most.
The Nightingale Tribute
Presented by the Nurses Honor Guard, The Nightingale Tribute pays homage to any registered nurse or licensed practical nurse for their years of service. For many, nursing is a calling and a way of life. It is a profession that cannot be lived in isolation and one in which nurses rely on each other for the synergistic effect of teamwork in all efforts of care giving. It is for these reasons that we honor nurses at the end of life’s journey with a special tribute.
