The holiday season can be an especially difficult time for families who have lost a loved one. As a way of honoring loved ones lost in the past year, La Porte City Funeral Home, a part of Kearns Funeral Service, invites members of the families they have served since last November to a special preholiday gathering at the Waterloo Elks Club Ballroom on Tuesday, November 18 at 7 PM. Those attending should use the Mulberry Street entrance.
In addition to a reading of the names of deceased loved ones, family members will have an opportunity to make an ornament that will be hung on a special Christmas tree located at the funeral home’s entry. Along with food and fellowship, a pastor will lead the gathering in a brief meditation and the staff will share ideas that could make the holiday season a little easier. Each family will also receive a gift in memory of their loved one.
Family members who plan to attend are asked to RSVP by November 14th by calling 319-342-3131.
