From our family to yours,
As communities around the world are struggling with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we wanted to reassure you that the health and safety of our client families, employees and anyone entering into our funeral home is our first priority. Being labeled in Alberta as Essential Services we, at Memento Funeral Chapel, will continue to serve you in our best way possible within the restrictions of our Government and Association guidelines.
We will continue to welcome anyone into our facility, this includes making funeral arrangements (1-2 people). However, if you have been out of the country or do not feel well we ask that you refrain from coming in and call us instead. We will make every effort to accommodate your needs by phone and/or email.
Following Alberta's newly implemented public health orders we will refrain from a gathering of more than 15 people (this now includes the clergy and Memento staff). As to respect the grieving needs of our client families we will continue to encourage funerals for close family members and invited guests for up to 15 people and/or a visitation which can also be held within this limit. Another option would be to have different visitation times for different people with this capacity restriction. We will also continue to welcome the option to hold the service at a later date when the current pandemic subsides.
Showing your compassion to a family member or friend is even more important than before. Therefore, as always, you are more than welcome to express your sympathy online through our website, Facebook page or email.
Through this difficult time we want to thank you in advance for your understanding and especially to the front-line healthcare workers who are working tirelessly on this effort.
Sincerely, The Memento Family
