Dashwood & Denyer bless their tree at Christmas

On Wednesday 15th December, Dashwood & Denyer Funeral Directors of Southsea invited clients into their funeral homes to attend their Christmas tree blessing service. The service was being held in memory of those who had lost someone throughout the past year.

The blessing was led by Reverend Alex Hughes of St Peters and St Lukes Parish, Southsea. Clients who attended the service were invited to place personal messages and memory cards onto the tree.

Reverend Hughes commented “It was a pleasure to be asked to bless the Christmas tree at Dashwood & Denyer Funeral Directors. Jan and her team offered myself and their guests a warm reception which made everyone feel welcome. I am certain that the simple act of placing the names of loved ones onto their Christmas treewill help give bereaved families comfort this Christmas”.

The team at Dashwood & Denyer including Funeral Co-ordinator Jan Stevenson concluded “It was a pleasure to be able to invite our families back into our funeral home to attend our blessing service and place their memorial cards onto our tree. At this time of year, it is important to remember the loved ones whom we have lost, and I was delighted to be able to organise this special service for our many families”.
