Holding a funeral or memorial service for your loved one is a positive first step in the grieving process. Family members and friends get a chance to say their goodbyes, and at the same time, they get to share strong feelings with one another.
In the days, weeks and months following the service, people continue to need others to lean on for understanding, encouragement and guidance. For that reason, many local and national support groups have formed. These groups provide a common place and a comforting environment for expressing emotions through each phase of the grieving process.

The assurance of hope beyond the grave
This photo depicts the split bedrock directly below where Jesus was crucified at Golgotha (Calvary). This is the orginal rock of Golgotha which foundation leads down to this location (The Chapel of Adam). The rock contains a large crack caused by the cosmic events which accompanied Jesus' death. The photo at the upper left depicts Jesus hanging on the cross with bystanders looking on.
Read St. Matthew 27:51
And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from top to bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
