Funerals & Memorials are very different these days. What are new ways to grieve, mourn, comfort and honor?

Please join us via zoom for our monthly meeting, to learn, laugh, mingle and network.

How are we supporting people in our community whose loved ones have died but are not able to go to funerals or memorials in a usual way because of the pandemic?

In Hawaii, about 1000 people die a month so nearly 6000 people have died since gathering restrictions began impacting 10s of 1000s of people have not been able to grieve, mourn and comfort each other.
