Grief Support Resources

Every person must cope with loss of a loved on his or her own terms.

The emotional upheaval these trying times can cause is sometimes so overwhelming that even the support of friends and family may not help relieve the amount of sadness and grief you feel.

At Parker Kohl Funeral Home & Crematory we offer the following aftercare grief sessions:

»  Infants Remembered in Silence (IRIS) 

IRIS is an organization that is dedicated to offering support, education and resources to parents, families, friends and professionals on the death of a child in early pregnancy (miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, etc) or from stillbirth, premature birth, neo-natal death, birth defects, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), illness, accidents, and all other types of infant & early childhood death.  All of us at Parker Kohl highly recommend and have valued the care and compassion provided by IRIS to the families we care for in Faribault and surrounding area.
