The following resources may be helpful to you as prepare to honor your loved one or in the days following.


At Stuhr Funeral Home, we firmly believe that support after the death of a loved one should be on-going. Provided at no cost to you, the Aftercare services we offer are at differing levels of assistance and are tailored to your family’s individual needs.

Our Director of Aftercare, Dru Strickland, is available to help you with the influx of forms, insurance policies, Social Security, corporate and governmental requirements which can seem overwhelming. Dru excels in personalized support and can help you handle the “loose ends” that follow the death of a loved one.

Once the certified Death Certificates arrive – generally ten business days after the order is placed – the person in your family designated as the informant will be contacted and can set up an Aftercare appointment.

Please contact the chapel handling your family’s arrangements to set up or change an Aftercare appointment. Dru can also be reached directly at (843) 881.9293 or

Grief Support

In addition to our Aftercare services, J. Henry Stuhr provides on-going workshops on dealing with grief. We have a rotating series of grief programs which offer insight into what to expect following the death of a loved one. We also offer and support several memorial and remembrance services to honor those who have died, as well as those who have served our country faithfully.

Another unique opportunity we offer is our monthly luncheon on the fourth Tuesday of each month at a local restaurant. Members of this small group have looked forward to having lunch together for more than 12 years. This is a time of fellowship and encouragement and we would love to have you join us.

Please contact Dru Strickland at (843) 881.9293 or for the monthly schedule or check our Calendar tab.
