ST. PAUL, MN, December 14, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- In an effort to help local Minnesotans who are going into the holidays with heartache this year, St. Paul funeral home Mueller Memorial has published "Happy at the Holidays." The grief support guide reaches out to those individuals and families and offers ways to manage their sorrow while staying active.---
For many, this year will be a little less joyful due to the recent death of a loved one. The holiday season, normally a time to celebrate family traditions, often accentuates these losses. "Happy at the Holidays" works to balance healthy holiday grief and remembrance ideas with steps to moving forward.
To help those coping with grief, the guide gives tips for:
• Staying physically active with indoor and outdoor activities
• Fostering deeper connections with family, friends, and community
• Trying new things and starting new holiday traditions
• Remembering loved ones at Christmas
Additionally, "Happy at the Holidays" includes a list of low and no-cost events and activities around the Twin Cities. From the Holidazzle Parade on Nicollet Mall to the Noon Years Party at the Como Park Zoo, these attractions give those missing a loved one a chance to still enjoy the season with others. If cold temperatures keep families indoors, the guide also has a recommended list of fun and classic holiday movies.
"The purpose of this guide is to encourage and uplift local people dealing with grief during the holiday season," said Scott Mueller, owner and director of Mueller Memorial funeral service. "We don't want to simply distract people - it's healthy to mourn a loss - but we do hope that we can help them reconnect with others and take steps towards a healthy future."

Mueller Memorial has been serving the Saint Paul community since 1946, when Al and Connie Mueller opened the original Mueller Mortuary on the corner of Maria and East 7th Street in St. Paul. The original building exists to this day and is home to Metro State University's Fine Arts Studio.
In 1954, the Mueller Memorial opened the Lake Mortuary on the corner of 3rd Street and Bald Eagle Avenue, White Bear Lake a facility which is still serving the needs of the community today.
Al Mueller realized the need for a larger, more updated facility to serve the St. Paul community, and built the Parkway Chapel to replace the original building in 1964.
Though many changes have taken place over the years, our commitment to dignified, personal service has always been a key part of the Mueller standard of service.
