“I want to thank you so much for your program. It is so comforting to know that we survivors are not forgotten.  I looked forward to each Wednesday afternoon; meeting the others and learning tips for our new path we must take.  I just wanted to let you know you are really making a difference in peoples lives. How much easier dealing with Hiers-Baxley made things for me.” -Ann Niehaus, The Villages, FL

LifeSteps™...stepping forward, remembering always

Experiencing the loss of a loved one brings change into our lives on multiple levels.  When we lose someone we love, we often become responsible for things we once were not - finances, home maintenance, and even everyday tasks such as cooking.

It is with these changes in mind that Hiers-Baxley Funeral Services has created the LifeSteps™ workshops.


The unique 5-week LifeSteps™ workshops afford the surviving spouse, companion, parent, child, sibling or friend of someone who has passed on the opportunity to come together with others who have experienced a loss, in a small group setting. Together with area experts, we cover information and practical tips on the necessary steps one must make as the result of loss...topics such as emotional well-being, financial decision-making, travel, home & personal safety, and even tips on healthy cooking.  Seating is limited, however, if you or someone you know is interested in the LifeSteps™ workshops, call Community Care Director, Beverly Brown at 352-671-6466, or email at beverly.brown@hiers-baxley.netLifeSteps™ workshops are available in Ocala and in The Villages, FL.  This FREE community outreach is open to all community members, regardless of whether or not they were served by Hiers-Baxley Funeral Services.
