Good Grief offers funeral support

New South Surrey company helps grieving family/friends deal with funeral planning

Planning for death – whether attending to details for one’s own eventual demise or arranging a funeral for a loved one – is a task that can be stressful.

Walt Johanson, a retired clergyman and Peninsula resident, aims to change that with his new company, Good Grief.

With more than 30 years of grief counselling experience, Johanson began offering informal funeral-planning support last summer.

“The most vulnerable consumer is a funeral consumer who is already dealing with his grief. He is genuinely thankful to the person who charges up to twice as much as needed for a funeral service,” he said.
