Facing The Future By Sharing Our Loss
Our fall grief support group is now being formed. The group will meet Monday afternoons in Mora, for 8 meetings over 16 weeks, from September 8, through December 15, 2014. Group members will learn about grief and mourning, share their personal experience, and encourage other group members in their grief journeys. This support group is for adults. Participants seem to benefit most if they have been bereaved 4 to 24 months. Facing the Future by Sharing Our Loss, will be facilitated by Jane Ingebrand BES, RN. Pre-registration and pre-screening are required and space is limited to twelve group members. Please register by Wed. Sept. 3, 2014. The fee for this group is $16.00 for materials. For more information, or to pre-register, Call Jane; at Akkerman – Ingebrand Funeral Home: 320.679.1933 or Rock – Ingebrand Funeral Home: 320.396.2121.
Local Funeral Director Becomes a Certified Funeral Celebrant
Ingebrand Funeral Homes of Mora & Braham is excited to announce that Katy Hamilton, Licensed Funeral Director, has completed a three day workshop to become a Certified Funeral Celebrant. A Funeral Celebrant is a professional who has been trained in the specific area of planning and conducting personalized funeral services, memorial services, celebrations of life, graveside services or tributes for families that desire a very personalized experience. While a Funeral Celebrant’s expertise may be used in either faith-based or secular services, a Celebrant may be especially helpful to families that prefer a secular service. The Funeral Celebrant meets with a family and helps them to design a service that reflects the life and attributes of their loved one, and then conducts that service at a place of the families choosing.
This practice is widely used in New Zealand and Australia and there are now approximately 1600 Certified Funeral Celebrants throughout the United States and Canada. Ingebrand Funeral Homes is very pleased to be able to offer the expertise of a Funeral Celebrant to the families they serve. If you would like more information about Celebrant led services, please make an appointment to meet with Katy, in Mora, at Akkerman – Ingebrand Funeral & Cremation Service: 320-679-1933 or in Braham, at Rock – Ingebrand Funeral & Cremation Service: 320-396-2121.

Experiencing change, loss, death and grief is difficult. We live in a culture that glorifies youth, beauty and productiveness and denies the role that loss, suffering and grief play in shaping our lives. When we love deeply we grieve deeply at the death of a loved one. Funeral rituals are important as they honor the life that was lived, help us express the grief we feel, invite friends and family to offer comfort and support and often become reunions for family and friends. Funerals are for the living. No two funerals are exactly alike. The ceremony may be religious or secular depending on the person responsible for making arrangements.
A meaningful, personalized funeral or memorial service will be an important occasion for the family to share memories and begin the grief process. We are committed to helping you plan a meaningful funeral or memorial service that is consistent with the life that was lived and strives to meet the emotional and financial needs of the survivors.
