DALTON, Ga.– Anyone who has lost a loved one is invited to attend the Hamilton Hospice Spring Memorial Service, scheduled for 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 19, in the Brown Conference Center auditorium, located in the Burkett Building on the Hamilton Medical Center campus. The service reflects and honors the loved ones cared for by our organization over the past year.

“It is an uplifting experience that we hope provides peace and closure to those who are struggling with the death of a family member or friend,” said Bo Callaway, Hospice director.

Family members and friends in attendance will be comforted with poetry, candle lighting, special music, and at the conclusion of the service, each family will place a butterfly on the butterfly tree as a symbol of love and hope.

The memorial service is sponsored by the Whitfield Healthcare Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Hamilton Health Care System, and held each spring and fall.
