The desire to help others has always been a concern of the Stevenson family

Grief Support

A profound sense of loss is felt at the death of a loved one whether that death is sudden or expected. There is no set pattern to grief. Some people grieve for a short time while others may never fully recover from their loss. Some won’t experience their grief until some time later. There is no one right way to grieve. As each of us are individuals, so too is our grief. The ability to make it through the death of a loved one can be challenging. You may have feelings of shock and disbelief, anger, guilt and depression.

Caring for yourself is not selfish. The period of recovery is different for every person. It is during these times that the support of friends and family is so important. Having a visitation, funeral or memorial service is an important part of the grieving process and brings people together who can give you a support network. If that is not enough, your local community, religious organizations and many healthcare organizations offer grief counseling or grief support groups. Although it may be difficult to reach out to these groups at first, many have found grief support groups to be a place where one can continue to grieve openly with others who share their pain.

At Stevenson Funeral Homes, we offer several Aftercare Programs. These are to help you to cope with the initial states of the grieving process. Should you desire group or individual counseling, we can recommend organizations. Should you be interested in our Grief Support Packet, CONTACT US by email or by telephone 1-866-483-7900.

Care Community
The Care Community is a website dedicated to helping people in grief and those caring for elderly loved ones.

I just wanted to give a HUGE shout out to Stevenson Funeral Home, out here in Dickinson. Last October, they did a wonderful job with the cremation and presentation of our baby boy Forrest.
With the passing of our latest boy, Leo, we didn’t get the option to cremate him, either bury him out here or leave him in the lab until we decided where to bury him. So I contacted Stevenson Funeral Home, who so generously offered to cremate him for us so he could come home and be with his brother. AND they’re only charging us a small fee of $10 for the whole process including his urn.
I was very nervous going in, with all this abortion talk, I was scared I would get laughed at for wanting to cremate a “fetus”. But to us, he is our son, no matter how big or small.
My heart is full knowing Leo can come home finally… I left in a puddle of grateful tears.❤

If you ever end up in such a tragedy as the death of a loved one, I highly recommend Stevenson Funeral Home.. They’re some of the nicest, most generous people I’ve met out here.
