Take an hour to remember a loved one

Remembering loved ones who have passed away is the theme of Hour of Remembrance

Remembering loved ones who have passed away is the theme of Hour of Remembrance — an event hosted jointly by Kalein Hospice Centre and SelfDesign High.

“Dying is much like being born,” said Cindy Fairs, Kalein’s executive director.

“It’s a natural part of life that happens to all of us. Although the death of a loved one can be very difficult to accept, it’s how we honour and remember them that helps us on our individual journeys of healing.”

In speaking about the event, Barbarah Nicoll, SelfDesign High’s vice-principal, shared that “reflecting on our loved ones with gratitude for their presence in our life, whether they are still with us or have passed on, brings a sense of peace and support for living in our day to day lives.”

She added “gathering with one another in a space of remembrance provides us with an opportunity to celebrate together, the lives of those we have lost and remember them with good and fond memories.”

The Hour of Remembrance will be held Friday, November 1 from 7 to 8 p.m. at Kalein Hospice Centre, 402 West Richards Street in Nelson and everyone is welcome to attend.

A memorial alter will be present and available for those who would like to bring or share a poem, picture or memento.

For more information please contact: Kalein Hospice Centre at 250-352-3331.
