The terrible events the nation witnessed in the parking lot of a Tucson, Arizona, grocery store on January 8, 2011 were shocking and incomprehensible.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of those who died: Christina Taylor Green, Dorothy Morris, Judge John Roll, Phyllis Schneck, Dorwan Stoddard and Gabe Zimmerman. Also in our hearts are those who were injured and those who witnessed this tragic event; we pray for their healing in both body and mind.
As funeral directors, you may encounter people in your community who, while not directly affected by Saturday's events, may be struggling to make sense of everything in their own minds. We would like to share tips and remind you about the NFDA resources available to you that may help you, as a community leader, reach out and offer comfort.
If you have questions about any of these suggestions or resources, please call your personal NFDA member services representative at 800-228-6332.
