Welcome to "A Caring Touch"

Grief Support Mailings with Online Database

Mark Thomas teamed up with Resources for GriefTM, a provider of aftercare support and education, to offer funeral homes this comprehensive bereavement follow-up program.

The program consists of 12 monthly compassionate letters and a single-page educational enclosure to accompany each letter. The mailings are intended for sending to the bereaved each month (or you can choose to send them less often) during the first year following a death. Sensitive to religious, cultural, age and gender differences, the mailings appeal to a wide range of persons.

The secure on-line database stores your bereavement follow-up data and keeps track of when to mail each personalized letter and enclosure. On a monthly basis, or less often, you can print the letters, enclosures, and mailing labels. The letters are designed for printing on your funeral home's letterhead, thus giving your funeral home consistent and important visibility.

Rebecca Hauder, a registered nurse, licensed clinical professional counselor and licensed marriage and family therapist, authored the letters and enclosures. She has more than 25 years of experience in working with grieving individuals and families in the hospice and private practice settings, and as a leader of grief support groups in hospitals and funeral homes. As soon as you subscribe to A Caring Touch mailings with an online database service, you will receive a password so you can access the database and begin to record your bereavement data! We will provide step-by-step instructions to get you started, and will be available to answer any questions at 1-800-437-2635. You'll be amazed at how easy it really is!


"I really like the database. It is very helpful in keeping organized as a bereavement coordinator and chaplain. I update the bereavement database almost everyday when there is a death and it keeps me focused. In Hawaii we say, Mahalo Nui Loa (thank you very much)."
Scott, Bereavement Coordinator
