Annual Memorial Service

You are invited to join us for this cherished community tradition—a very special evening of music, candle-lighting, and personal reflections shared with family members and others who have lost loved ones.

The death of a loved one is, for most of us, one of the most difficult life events we will ever have to endure. Because grief can be so painful and overwhelming, we are sometimes scared into believing that, in order to heal, we must sever the bond we had with our loved one. Quite the opposite is true. By maintaining that special bond, by commemorating the lives of loved ones, by keeping their memory alive, we are better able to find that special place in our heart that is reserved only for them. The relationship continues—just in a different way.

We hope you will join us on Tuesday, November 29th at 6pm for this meaningful service.

Angel Ornaments 2017

Each year, HospiceCare of the Piedmont provides a special and unique way in which hospice families, as well as community members, pay tribute to their loved one’s memory. This year, we are pleased to offer angel ornaments, by Seattle Porcelain Company. Each angel represents love, joy, peace and hope; a lasting symbol of comfort for all who have experienced grief and loss.

This year’s angel is holding a house. It was designed to celebrate a life that was lost, loved and remembered. Each angel is highlighted with Mother-of-Pearl, kiln fired twice, and individually polished to a fine smooth sheen. They are hand-cast hollow ornaments made of highly translucent porcelain. They glow when a light is placed inside the back of the ornament. They display beautifully on a stand or hanging from a decorative ornament hook. A cream-colored bow and ribbon are hand applied and the angel is packaged in a box.

“Angel with Trumpet” is available for $20.00 each. Your loved one’s name and 2016 can be printed on a card that is attached to the angel.  To purchase an angel, please download the order form and submit to HospiceCare of the Piedmont along with your check.  There is a limited supply of ornaments available.  Please place your order now to guarantee availability.  Thank you for your support!
