“Accepting the fact of death, we are freed to live more fully.
In bereavement give yourself time to grieve.
When others mourn, let your love embrace them.”
~ Quaker Booklet of Advice and Queries

In addition to a Memorial Meeting for Worship, we celebrate the life of all our deceased Members with a Memorial Minute – a lasting appreciation for the life and service of the departed Friend. This Minute is a brief biography, and may also serve as historical documentation of the Member’s relationships to other Members and to the institutions of the Religious Society of Friends.
