We view Alpena as a large family and we want to be available to help families prior to a death, at the time of death, and following a death any way we can. This website will contain online resources for coping with illness, death and grief. However, since we know not everyone has a computer or internet access, we chose to also partner with Olivet Book and Gift and Alpena County Public Library for ease in access for three reasons. 

  • First, it allows members of the community to help members of the community.
  • Second, economically instead of directing families to a website where money is spent elsewhere, products are being purchased locally to help the community. 
  • Thirdly, those using the Lending Library or other entities would be able to share with those who are experiencing the same type of grief should they so desire.

We will continually work toward providing information that is useful to our community, both online and through our lending library, and welcome your comments and/or suggestions.

Thank you for visiting us online.
