Cook Family Funeral Home -
Proud To Support Our Community!
Please join us for our annual US Marine Corps -"Toys For Tots" Campaign in 2017! Cook Family Funeral Home sponsors the US Marine Corps Toys For Tots program during the holiday season. Throughout the many years, thousands of toys have been donated to help children in need.
The 2017 Toy Drive will begin November 17th and end December 21st. Please bring your toy donations to the funeral home (163 Wyatt Way NE). We will also be collecting funds and food to benefit The Helpline House on Bainbridge Island.
Also, please join us on Saturday, December 2, 2017 at 11:00 AM at Bainbridge Cinemas for our FREE showing of "ELF"! Buddy (Will Ferrell) was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa's elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn't fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. As it happens, this is Walter Hobbs (James Caan), a cynical businessman. After a DNA test proves this, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results. The Marines will be at the event in full uniform! Let's come together for a great cause, bring a toy donation (optional) and have some fun! Happy Holidays!

These seminars are designed to help you: (i) protect assets; (ii) avoid institutional care if possible; (iii) find the right placement if alternative housing becomes necessary; and (iv) not become a burden on others. It is the understanding of how coordination of healthcare (Medicare and Medicaid), housing (Age in Place and Retirement Communities), financial (private assets and public benefits such as VA Benefits or Medicaid Benefits) and legal (Estate Planning and Safe Harbor Trust Planning) solutions can secure your retirement. And if you are not retired, how to better plan for a worry free retirement. Register in advance for the FREE seminar on our website.

Understanding your feelings and helping yourself
to heal...p>You have lost a loved one and your sense of loss may be profound,
leaving you wondering how you are going to get through
the day and months ahead. You ask yourself if you can deal with the myriad of
feelings you are now experiencing, and wondering if time by itself heals.
It is important to know that we live in a culture that
has only begun to better acknowledge that healing from a loss is not a
passive event to be experienced alone. Some may need to do more than waiting
for healing to take place. Grief is the normal internal recognition that
something has changed in you life, and perhaps that "something" is major.
Grief is an emotional and spiritual process that requires a working through
in order to get to the other side. While it is up to each person to do their
own work, it can be very helpful to allow fellow companions to be with, to
share, to empathize, and to support the mourner.
