For the sixth consecutive year, Lincoln County Home Health and Hospice hosted Celebration of Life, a gathering in Stone Bridge Park dedicated to the memory of those who have passed away. Last Thursday evening’s event was well attended.
This year’s celebration was “A Walk to Remember,” a candlelight vigil accompanied by live music performed by Strangers with Friends. Luminaries purchased by family members lined the park’s circular path, each bearing the name of a loved one who has passed. These names were later read aloud by Debbie Yorba, administrator of Lincoln Medical Home Health and Hospice.
The proceeds generated by the luminaries will contribute to the hospice fees of Lincoln County citizens.
While the number of luminaries was limited to 46, Yorba said anyone who has lost a loved one was welcome to the Celebration of Life event, and those names unspoken were also remembered.
“We hope this event helps you fondly remember your loved one,” the Lincoln County Home Health and Hospice staff acknowledged. “There is sadness in saying goodbye to one you love, but it is a wonderful gift to be able to ensure that a life so special ends with comfort and dignity.”
