Our weekly radio program, "Music & Memories", is broadcast every Sunday morning at 8 a.m. over KASM radio, 1150AM. Each week we recognize those who died in the coming week of the previous year, along with inspirational music.

Invitations to listen are sent out to each family we have served about a week before the program airs. But now we are able to post the script for this coming Sunday right here.

We invite you to have your loved one remembered on the program. Just fill out this form. Remember to send us the name and date of death about ten days ahead of time so that we can get them on the program the week before the anniversary date.

Broadcast for Sunday September 25, 2022

Good morning and welcome to Music & Memories.

This is Linda Sue and I am the grief specialist at Patton-Schad Funeral Home. It is my pleasure to bring you this week’s program on KASM. This program is our way of reaching out to help families deal with those difficult days surrounding the death anniversary of a loved one.  

Developing a new self- identity. Part of your self-identity was formed by the relationship you had with the person who died. For example, you may have gone from being a “wife” to a “widow” or from being a “parent” to being a bereaved parent. You need to re-anchor yourself, to reconstruct your self-identity. Remember moving forward doesn’t mean leaving your loved one behind; you take them with you in your heart; forever.

Good morning and welcome to Music & Memories.

Movement toward your healing can be very draining and exhausting. As difficult as it might be, seek out people who give you hope for your healing. Permitting yourself to have hope is central to achieving reconciliation. Reconciliation is a very important concept to keep in mind as you journey through your grief remembering that you cannot ‘get over’ or ‘recover from’ or ‘resolve’ your grief, but you can reconcile yourself to it. Meaning that you can learn to incorporate it into your consciousness and move forward with meaning and purpose in your life. Alan Wolfelt

As we venture onward through our grief, we come to realize that expressing our feelings and allowing the tears can help make the pain softer. These tears are love tears and reminds us that we loved and were loved. Tears are also our bodies way of cleansing, to de-toxify.

“When someone you loved dies, we naturally question the meaning and purpose of life and death. The, why did this happen comes before how will I go on living?” You will most certainly question your philosophy of life and explore religious and spiritual values as you move forward. “Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted.” The beginning to creating your new normal.
