A Message from Lisa . .

The name Good Grief, INC; the INC stands for "In the Name of Christ".  This is intended to reflect a philosophy that although suffering and loss is inevitable in all of our lives, these challenging times can be a vehicle for growth, added purpose, and increased quality of life if we'll but reach for God's grace and the comfort of fellowship with others. And that all that we do we do in His name.

The Mission

Every life is sacred and should be treated with respect and dignity.  Our mission is to provide the highest standard of care tailored to meet your needs and expecations at an affordable rate.
