Bereavement Resources

Supporting You in Your Time of Grief

Tabitha’s comprehensive bereavement program offers support to spouses and family members during a time of loss. Our bereavement services include:

Take Care of Yourself

Grief Note

Grieving is difficult. Add in the holidays and you may be wondering how you will make it through. We often look for signs to connect us with our loved one.

Some people think when a cardinal appears in your yard, it is a visitor from heaven. Others think that when they hear a special song or smell a special scent that it is a sign from above. Special connections also occur as we celebrate holidays that were important to our loved ones through scents, decorations, food and music.

Remembering Angels

This Christmas, we are lighting angels in memory of those we've served through Tabitha Hospice. This angel will be lit to remind you that you aren't alone in your grief, and that light always shines through darkness. Angels will be lit from Dec. 9 through New Year's.

Join us on Friday, Dec. 9 for a service of dedication at the back patio of Journey House in Lincoln at 4 p.m. or Foster Park in York at 4 p.m. (weather permitting). If you want to see one of the angels, they will be at both of these locations at that time.

If you are unable to attend the service but would like your angel ornament, please contact your local bereavement coordinator. RSVP by calling 402.362.7739 for York or 402.486.8506 for Lincoln.
