Frank was extremely helpful with getting the arrangements made as it all had to be done by cellphone while we were traveling from Arizona to Ohio. He went out of his way to accommodate our family and all of our wishes. Even a last minute rose for granddaughter to place on the casket to a map to a reception lunch after the grave side service. I could not have been more pleased.
At Hill Funeral Home, our support does not end with the conclusion of the ceremony. Every loss carries with it someone who may still need some help letting go. Additional care is available in from us, from your place of worship, from your medical community, and more. Whether you are dealing with the prospect of death and dying, or have already lost your loved one, this is a partial list of local resources that can sometimes help you get through the challenges you may not be able to face on your own. This is by no means a complete list. If you need additional direction, please feel free to call us.

Do you sometimes wonder what is normal or when will the grieving end? Have you felt overwhelmed with emotions including grief, confusion, fear, guilt, numbness and more? The only thing normal is that these reactions are different for everyone. Your circumstances are unique. The loss of a parent, a child, a spouse, a sibling, a friend or co-worker, or even a pet can leave you feeling alone and wondering how you can get through the day. In the days, weeks or months after the funeral, it’s good to know there are people and organizations in our community that are ready help and who understand what you are going through. The first thing is to recognize that you are not alone. Below is a list of services and organizations that may be able to help. Also, you may want to consider reaching out to your spiritual community, your health care practitioner, a familiar counseling service, or friends for additional support.
