Family and friends gathered in the Riverview Room at St. Luke Health Services for a Memorial Service held in honor of residents who had passed away within the last year.
Family or staff placed a flower of remembrance in a Memorial Wreath, as the name of each deceased resident was announced. Words of remembrance from family and friends included many joyful memories as part of this special gathering.
“Families placed their trust in St. Luke and we think it is appropriate to both remember and to celebrate the lives of those who have gone before us, and also to share in the feelings of loss families may be experiencing,” said St. Luke’s Pastoral Care Coordinator Debby Greutman, who helped organize the memorial service. “We are grateful to all our residents, staff and families for joining us in what was a moving ceremony.”
