There's a heavy focus on family this time of year, but for many people this will be a first Christmas without on of their loved ones. One local business dedicates a day every year to help their community through it.

For the 27th year, Chiles-Laman Funeral and Cremation Services held their Tree of Remembrance service. Around 260 people reserved seats for the event. The service welcomes people of every faith to come and honor the ones the love. Chiles-Laman also hands out guidebooks to help attendees with renewing their spirit. Each family who has suffered a loss in the past year also received an engraved snowflake ornament engraved with the loved one's name.

"I think it's very nice," says Bob Laman, President of Chiles-Laman. "They can put it on their tree every year and that helps them with the memory of the loved one that they've lost. Just a sense of hope for the holiday season and to hopefully try to get back their lives as well as they can."

After the ceremony, guests were invited to stay for refreshments and conversation with others going through the grieving process.
