Christmas Memorial Service

    At Krapf & Hughes, it is our desire to lead you into this holiday season with comfort, healing and direction. Below you will find information on our 2023 Christmas Memorial Service.



  • What is a Christmas Memorial Service?
  • Our staff is in the process of organizing, planning and orchestrating a memorial service where the families we have served this year, come together as one to remember the lives of your loved ones. The first Christmas without any loved one weighs on the hearts of all. The service reassures families that the sadness and grief they are experiencing is normal and healthy. 
  • This night of healing and comfort will include messages from both Catholic and Protestant faith, special music from local vocalists, a string group and choir offering meditative carols. The names of all decedents cared for by our funeral home from November 15, 2022 through November 15, 2023 will be read aloud during the candlelight portion of the service. Families will be invited to stand and raise their candles in honor of their passed family member.  


  • When will the Memorial Service Be Held?
    • The Service will be held Sunday afternoon, December 10, 2023 at 4:00pm at our newly renovated Butler Chapel located at 530 W. Butler Drive, Drums. 


  • I did not receive an invitation but my loved one was served through your funeral home. Why?
    • Were you the principal contact on your loved one’s funeral service? This person was listed as the "Informant" on the death certificate and had the capacity to authorize dispositions like cremation and embalming. This person was the only family member to receive a invitation. Please coordinate with that Informant, as a reply card with the number of guests attending is required to be returned to the funeral home.
    • Did your loved one pass away between the dates of November 15, 2022 and November 15, 2023? Decedents before that date were included in last year's Memorial Service which is available on our YouTube page. If your loved one passed after November 15, 2023, you will be included in next year's service. 


  • Will the service be livestreamed for those unable to attend?
    • We are excited to host this healing event in-person once again. We acknowledge that everyone has varying comfort levels when deciding to attend events like these and as a result, the service will be livestreamed that evening but will remain on our YouTube afterwards for viewing at a later time. The service can be accessed on YouTube or right here on our website. 


  • My family used another funeral home. Are we still invited?
    • In 2020 with our virtual service, we were able to welcome anyone who experienced a loss to view our service. With the last few years being in-person, it is limited to families who used Krapf & Hughes. However, anyone is welcome to watch the livestream. 


  • How can I order more ornaments?
    • Ornament may be ordered through our website at any time day or night, for any loved one. Everyone is welcome to order.
