  • How to Support a Grieving Friend

    When a close friend loses a loved one, reaching out with comfort and support is often appreciated. There are many ways to provide emotional support for a friend, including attending the funeral service, sending a note, flowers, or donation to the family, and offering to spend time with your friend as he grieves. Understanding that everyone processes grief differently is important—rather than trying to offer advice that may have helped you, offer to listen or simply spend time together so your friend can grieve in his own way. This may include going out to meals, going to the movies, taking walks, or even visiting the cemetery together. Let your friend remember and speak about his loved one as little or as much as he wishes over time; offering long-term support will provide your friend with the resources he needs, even long after the funeral service is over.

    At Greenwood Memorial Park & Mortuary, we are dedicated to offering personalized funeral services in San Diego, including burial and cremation. You can reach us to discuss planning your funeral or to seek grief support services via our website or by calling (619) 701-6473.

  • The Process of Writing an Obituary

    An obituary often serves as both a notice of death and as a remembrance of the life of the deceased. Obituaries are personalized statements that can include as little or as much information as you’d like. There are, however, a few common formats that your obituary may take. In most cases, the obituary contains information about the funeral service, as well as details about the family of the deceased and his major life accomplishments. Some obituaries include charity donation information as well. You can find out more about the process of writing an obituary by watching this short video.
