Hospice service of remembrance June 24   Send a link to a friend

[June 16, 2007]  The next hospice service of remembrance for the community is scheduled for June 24 at 2 p.m. at Immanuel Lutheran Church, 1409 Pulaski St. in Lincoln.

The interfaith memorial service will remember those who have been served by hospice staff and volunteers throughout the past year. As the name of each deceased patient is read aloud, friends and family members are encouraged to come forward and light a candle in their loved one's name.

Others are welcome to attend to remember friends and family members who have died at any time from any cause.

A reception will follow the service to give families time to visit with Memorial Home Services Hospice staff and each other.

Hospice remembrance services are conducted every four months and rotate between churches in Lincoln, Chatham and Jacksonville.
