Grief Support Services

Mountain View Funeral Home has been offering Grief Support to the community we serve since 1989. We believe very strongly in aftercare following the death of a loved one. We dedicate ourselves to helping people endure the pain of grief by providing a safe, supportive environment where folks can come and share their sorrows with others in the same situation. The aftercare program for the bereaved is available to the community at no cost. You need not to have been a client of Mountain View to take advantage of these services.

Our Bereavement Consultant
Geoff Piper, MC/MFT, LFMT, has facilitated Mountain View's bereavement support services since 2009. He has many years of experience in grief support and counseling in a  variety of settings. Geoff is a member of the Association for Death Education and Counseling (ADEC), the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (AAMFT) and the Washington Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (WAMFT).
