Hospice Celebration Of Life

by Chris Cato

It was a celebration of life for those who have to spend so much time dealing with death. Hospice In The Pines hosted their 17th Annual Celebration Saturday to honor the memories of loved ones and to also offer encouragement to family and friends of those who are, or have been, in Hospice care.

Those attending enjoyed not only music, but an inspirational message to the families. Organizers say they hope to bring comfort with their encouraging words.

Dee Black of Hospice In The Pines said, "We want to encourage them in their ongoing journeys. Sometimes, terminal illness is quite traumatic. It's always quite traumatic, and many times, people go through the grieving, bereavement process, and we don't want them to go that route alone."

A memory tree was also decorated at the celebration with ornaments from families honoring their loved ones.
