Hamilton Hospice is inviting anyone who has lost a loved one to attend its spring Celebration of Life service at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 2. The event will be held at First Presbyterian Church of Dalton, 101 South Selvidge St. The service is held in honor of the loved ones cared for by Hamilton Hospice throughout the past several months, but is open to all those grieving a loss.
“This service is an opportunity to celebrate the lives of those we’ve lost and provide a place where family members and friends can share memories and find comfort,” said Megan Little, bereavement coordinator for Hamilton Hospice.
The service is designed to comfort and encourage family members and friends in attendance with words of encouragement, special music and a butterfly tribute. At the conclusion of the service, each family is given a live butterfly and asked to join the hospice team for a butterfly release ceremony.
Families are encouraged to bring a framed photo of their loved one to display during the service.
The celebration of life service is sponsored by the Whitfield Healthcare Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Hamilton Health Care System, and held each spring and fall.
