The service is for families and friends of patients who have died at
Memorial Medical Center. The ceremony is also open to parents who
have lost a child during pregnancy.
The service was originally
scheduled for March 2 but was canceled because of inclement weather.
The service will begin at 2 p.m., followed by the planting of a
"memory bush" on the church grounds.
The Service of Remembrance also provides an opportunity for staff
and physicians to remember the patients they cared for and to
celebrate the lives of those patients with family and friends.
