We understand that the holiday season can be a challenge for families who have lost someone special.
And we understand that it's good to Remember Well.
So we established a meaningful time for families to come reflect, to remember and to honor those lives that have meant so much to us. We call it "Love Lights A Candle". This year marks the 11th year we have held the Service of Remembrance. The Service was held on Sunday, December 6th, in our chapel. CLICK HERE for a photo of the all the lit candles during the service.
With approximately 300 in attendance each year since its inception, our Annual Candlelight Service of Remembrance is held  in our chapel on the first Sunday in December. Each family attending receives a personalized tribute candle as our gift to light during the ceremony and to take home afterward. Following the candle ceremony, everyone is invited to linger and visit awhile over some holiday treats and coffee during a refreshment reception.
"Love Lights A Candle"  reminds us that special lives can live on in us -- in our hearts, in our minds and in our memories. And memories are for keeps.
Remember Well.
