White Haven Memorial Park and The Holidays

The holidays are a special time.  Between festive parties, decadent meals and time with the family, we also need to make time to remember those who are no longer here.  We hope that you will take the time to cherish both your friends and family that are with you now and also those who have passed on.

The loss of a loved one is one of the single most traumatic experiences of a lifetime.  The holidays can be an extremely difficult time for those who are grieving a death.  At White Haven, we offer free literature as well as a variety of programs and services throughout the year to help you cope with your loss and remember your loved one.  For more information, please contact Donna Miller at 585-586-8232.

We want our cemetery at White Haven to provide a symbolic bridge to maintain the connection between the living and the dead.  Years of observance has shown that cemeteries facilitate healing and recovery in several ways including memorialization, visitation, participation and information.  Visiting the dead long after death can keep the relationship alive and fill the void created by the loss.

In many cases, death ends suffering for one but is just the beginning of suffering for those left behind.  The facility at White Haven Memorial Park has everything you need and so much more to remember your loved one fondly.  You can attend our Holiday Remembrance Service on December 5, order a holiday wreath for your loved one's grave or holiday arrangement for your loved one's crypt or niche, or simply take the time to visit your loved one and then go for a leisurely stroll along our Nature Trail. Whatever means you choose, we hope that your White Haven connection will help to ease your loss in some small way.

For further information on any of these healing opportunities, please visit our website at or call us at (585)-586-5250.
