In Loving Memory: A Virtual Remembrance Ceremony
Nov. 2, 2020
Virtual event using Zoom
Free; calling rates apply if calling in for the ceremony
Loved ones of those who have died this past year while in the hospital or being cared for through the hospice program are invited to attend this virtual event.
The theme for this program is reflected in a children’s book called The Invisible String by Patrice Karst. In the book, Karst shares the thought that people who love each other are always connected by a very special string made of love." Through readings, music and reflection, we will share ideas that remind us all that love is ours to keep.
To continue this theme after the ceremony, consider tying a string, yarn, ribbon or cord in your yard or home. Place it somewhere where you can see it often, as another remembrance of your loved one and the ties that bind you to them in love and memory. You can do this as a family, with friends or individually. Take a moment to remember that person as you attach the string.
