Candle Lighting & Service of Remembrance

Families and friends are invited to share in this ecumenical celebration of love and remembrance for our hospice and palliative patients, community members, relatives and all loved ones who have died.

The program includes music, readings and a candle lighting and rose ceremony.  Everyone in attendance will have the opportunity to light a candle for any loved ones they wish to remember.

Rose Beyond the Wall

by A.L. Frink

A rose once grew where all could see,

sheltered beside a garden wall.

And as the days passed swiftly by,

it spread its branches, straight and tall....

One day, a beam of light shone through

a crevice that had opened wide ~

The rose bent gently toward its warmth

then passed beyond to the other side.

Now, you who deeply feel its loss,

be comforted ~ the rose blooms there ~

its beauty even greater now,

nurtured by God's own loving care.
