The Redwood Area Hospital Hospice invites the community to join their annual memorial service on Monday, May 7, 2012. The service celebrates the lives of those who were cared for by hospice, but also all loved ones from our area who have died.
“This is a special event for our hospice team, to honor the lives they have touched,” said Kay Peters, Redwood Area Hospital Hospice manager. “This ceremony allows us to offer support and understanding to anyone that has lost a loved one, making us a stronger community.”
A special part of the service is the lighting of the memorial candles in honor of loved ones that have died during the past year.
The service will be held at 6:30 p.m. in the RedwoodAreaHospital’s education room or outside in the serenity garden if weather permits. Following the memorial service, everyone is invited to a time of fellowship.
