Bissler & Sons Funeral Home and Crematory, 628 W. Main St., Kent, held its 22nd annual Holiday Remembrance Service recently at the funeral home.
This gathering allows families a special time to come together and share the emotions that the season brings to those who have lost a loved one.
They gain support not only from family presence and the service but they gain support from the community at large. Bissler & Sons hope that, in some small way, this celebration makes this holiday season a little easier.
This year's service featured Funeral Celebrant Kevin O'Brien.
Following the service, each family placed a dove on the tree in the middle of the funeral home in remembrance of their loved one as the roll was being read.
The Varsity Women of Theodore Roosevelt High School in Kent, under the direction of Cory Fowler, performed during the placement of the doves.
Bissler & Sons Funeral Home has used the doves and the tree since the inception of this program.
