Cozine Memorial Group remains committed and prepared to safely care for the families we serve during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We receive continual updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), Kansas Funeral Directors Association (KFDA), and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment about the evolution of COVID-19 in the United States.
Whenever possible, we will continue to enable families to participate in the customs and rituals that are most important to them. Families may still choose either burial or cremation. We recognize the importance of visitations, funeral and memorial services and have options available to help facilitate these needs including limited viewings and live webcasting of services.
At Cozine Memorial Group, we recognize that it is our responsibility to protect our staff and the health of those we are privileged to serve. We remain committed to assisting families in creating meaningful ways to commemorate the life of a loved one, while at the same time adhering to the guidance issued by federal, state, and local public health officials.
Currently, our business hours are Monday through Saturday, 8am – 5pm. We will be closed on Sundays. To arrange an appointment outside of these hours, please contact us. These hours will allow our staff to be vigilant about providing safe and clean facilities for families and their guests. As always, we are still available 24 hours a day by telephone at 316.262.3435 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have the Talk of a Lifetime
You talk about everything. You share the big events and small victories, but there’s one conversation you probably haven’t had…it’s time to have the talk about how you want to be remembered. It can make the difference of a lifetime.
Sharing stories with those who matter most isn’t just important today, it will be especially significant when it’s time to commemorate a life. Have the Talk of a Lifetime encourages families to have conversations about life and what matters most. These discussions can help families make important decisions about how they wish to remember and honor the lives of their loved ones.
Through meaningful memorialization – that is, taking the time to reflect on the unique life of a loved one and remember the difference they made – families and friends take an important step in the journey toward healing after death. Today, individuals and their families have more options for memorializing their loved one at the end of life.
Memorialization is so much more than it used to be. It can reflect a person’s life story, their values, interests and experiences. It is transformative, healing and comforting. Meaningful memorialization planning starts when loved ones talk about what matters most – memories made, lessons learned and how they hope to be remembered.
We are pleased to offer families in our community a free guide, Have the Talk of a Lifetime. This fillable PDF workbook will help you begin to have meaningful conversations with your loved ones about life and the things that matter most. Please call us for assistance or additional information about your memorialization options.
“Your kindness and compassion have been a resting place for my many concerns. It’s truly a comfort to have our needs looked after by a Christian family that understands our loss. Thank you for your help and prayers.”
