Letter: Basler Funeral Home Again Offers Tree Of Memories

To the Editor:

In December 1998, the Basler family began the Tree of Memories Program in recognition of our 100 years of dedicated funeral service to the Ste. Genevieve community. Since then the program has become an important part of the Christmas season for us.

Celebrate Christmas by celebrating the life of a loved one whom you have lost during the past year. To express our care and support for those who experienced the death of a loved one, the Basler family and staff is sponsoring a program of remembrance. The annual Tree of Memories program is available at no cost to anyone who has lost a loved one during the past year (December 2018 through November 2019), no matter what funeral home conducted the service.

A Christmas tree is decorated in memory of those special loved ones and placed in the foyer of Basler Funeral Home. Upon written request, a personalized ornament bearing your loved ones name will be placed on the tree.

You are invited to join the Basler family and staff for a special Memorial Service on Saturday, December 14, 2019 at 1 p.m. at Basler Funeral Home, 685 Center Drive, Ste. Genevieve.

As the spirit of this beautiful season fills our hearts, we pause to remember our loved ones who are no longer with us. Basler Funeral Home sincerely hopes this small gesture will help make the memory of someone you love a positive part of your Christmas season.

Those who have lost a loved one this past year (December 2018 through November 2019) and were not served by Basler Funeral Home and would like their loved one’s name included in the Memorial Service should call Basler Funeral Home at 573-883-3558 by Wednesday, December 11.

Eric Basler,

Basler Funeral Home
