Morrissett Funeral & Cremation Service understands that the families we serve need continued support after the death of a loved one. Our objective is to embrace each family with “Aftercare” designed to meet their needs, as well as serving the Chesterfield County community.
Our Aftercare Director/Community Care Coordinator, Greg Webber, offers grief support to the families we serve at no additional cost. Greg has an MDiv. Seminary degree and has served churches in Louisiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Virginia in pastoral ministry. Greg possesses invaluable training and experience in assisting those in need of spouse loss, child loss, drug overdose death and suicide loss grief support offering community resources, crisis counseling and grief support groups. Our bereavement support groups are also available to the community-at-large, at no charge, depending on space availability.
