For those who would like to honor their loved ones, Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare is offering the community an opportunity to remember them through its Lights of Remembrance program. Memorial trees have been placed throughout the community for friends and family to write the names of their loved ones and share a holiday memory on a snowflake ornament.
The memorial trees are located at the Wayne County Public Library in Wooster, the Darb Snyder Senior Center in Millersburg, Heartland Point in Orrvilleand the Brethren Care Village in Ashland.
“For those who have lost a loved one, the holidays can be difficult,” said Lynn Lilly, bereavement counseling professional at Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare. “Through the Lights of Remembrance, we honor and remember those who are not with us during the holiday season.”
Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare has offered the Lights of Remembrance program to the community for more than 15 years. For more information about the program, call Lilly at 937.264.4899.
