Hospice holds Nov. 10 service at veterans park

Big Bend Hospice invites everyone to the annual Service of Remembrance, at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, at the Three Servicemen Statue, 230 Market Street, Apalachicola

The service is non-denominational, to bring together those in the community to honor the memories of loved ones at this very special time of the year.

“Many times people become overwhelmed with emotions during the holiday season. This service provides a wonderful opportunity to pause to remember, pay honor and find support. This is a time for remembrance open to everyone in the community,” said Cathy Adkison, Big Bend Hospice’s president and CEO.

Services include music by music therapists and words of encouragement from chaplains, all part of the Big Bend Hospice staff. Hospice grief and loss counselors will be available to talk. The service concludes with a special candle lighting ceremony and passing of the candlelight in memory of loved ones. A reception follows, hosted by members from the county’s advisory council.

Those who attend share a common purpose – to honor and to remember a loved one who has died, to be surrounded by others on a similar journey and to connect with loved ones. The service is proof that death ends a life and not a relationship, that holidays can still be a time of hope and of family, of love and of connection to all the things and all the people who have ever been important to us.

For additional information about Big Bend Hospice’s bereavement services, please contact Pam Mezzina at (850) 878-5310, ext. 799 or pam@bigbendhospice.org. Registration information also available at www.bigbendhospice.org.

Big Bend Hospice has been serving this community since 1983 with compassionate end of life care along with grief and loss counselors available to provide information and support to anyone in Leon, Jefferson, Taylor, Madison, Gadsden, Liberty, Franklin or Wakulla counties.
