In addition to the bereavement services for the families we serve, we have provided some helpful grief support links below:
Webhealing.com, the first interactive grief website on the internet, offers discussion boards, articles, book suggestions, and advice for men and women working through every aspect of grief. The site’s founder, Tom Golden LCSW, has provided book excerpts and contact information to help those healing from loss.
Willowgreen offers support and information for those dealing with life transition & aging, illness & caregiving, loss & grief, and hope & spirituality. The site offers advice, products, and inspirational materials.
The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) website contains a Grief & Loss section with grief-related articles and information.
The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization’s website provides a host of information and resources for people facing a life-limiting illness or injury and their caregivers.
Our support in your time of need does not end after the funeral services. Enter your email below to receive a grief support message from us each day for a year. You can unsubscribe at any time.
Mattoax Cemetery is located off Chula Road and 616 in Amelia County and offers gravesites for purchase to those needing a space or spaces for their family burials. It is called the Mattoax Cemetery Association which means when you purchase graves or a grave there you become part of the Association and basically own a part of the property. You may contact Jim Hix at Hillsman-Hix Funeral Home 804-561-2521 or Steve Arthur at 804-561-2416 to visit and purchase a lot there. The cost presently for each grave is $500, and the cemetery does require the use of a concrete liner or concrete vault for an interment. This is required for maintenance as the grave will sink and will require constant attention if one is not used. If you wish to visit the cemetery the address is the 14500 block of Mason Lane, Amelia, VA 23002. The cemetery is on your left soon after you turn onto Mason Lane from Genito Road.
