Celebration of Life

by Christa Lollis

For 20 years Hospice in the Pines, Gipson Funeral home and East Texans have been coming together to honor family members who have passed away.  Today was the annual Celebration of Life.  The chapel at the Museum of East Texas was packed with East Texans who wanted to pay their respects. Encouraging words were offered to help them bring closure. Organizers of the event say it's really about remembering loved ones and honoring their memory.
