KENNER – The 14th annual Christmas Service of Remembrance, will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 12, in the Pontchartrain Center’s Belle Grove Plantation ballroom on Williams Boulevard at the lake. This is a free event sponsored by family and staff of L.A. Muhleisen and Son and Millet-Guidry Funeral Homes of LaPlace.
This service honors the memory of loved ones in this community.
In announcing this service, Edward Muhleisen, a fifth generation funeral director, said, “We know that the holidays are not festive for everyone, especially those families who have experienced a recent death, This is why we encourage anyone who has experienced the loss of someone special to attend the service and pay tribute to their memory. Historically, those in attendance will find this to be a very comforting and meaningful program, some have even said that their Christmas doesn’t start until they have attended this program and others that they felt the presence
of their loved ones during the service. Our hope is that it will provide all in attendance with a source of strength and inspiration throughout the holiday season.”
The keynote speaker is Edie Triche. Triche will relate the events immediately following her son Jeremy’s tragic death while on duty for the St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office and how she and her family have coped with his loss.
At the conclusion, participants will be presented with an Angel of Remembrance, taken from a Christmas tree, in memory of their loved one.
