Our theme this month is Love Heals. Love is Celebrated.  If you’re grieving the loss of a loved one, one way love heals is by remembering with love. To that end, we hope you join us this Sunday, February 10 for Remembering with Love: A Ceremony Honoring Your Loved One Who Died. At this ceremony, we’ll celebrate love with a tribute video of those cared for by Koch Funeral Home in 2018. And even if you don’t fit into that category, you are still welcome to attend. Simply submit a digital image of your loved one when you RSVP. We will also have a candle lighting, name reading ceremony and moment of silence. Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see many of you there!
