Memory lights ornaments on sale now
With the holidays come the joyful festivities that make the winter a warmer season. For those families who have suffered the death of a loved one, however, this time of year can be difficult. Memory Lights from the Healing Hearts Support Group at Rockford Memorial Hospital are a unique way to remember these special persons.
The ornament is inscribed with your loved ones name and a date. Purchased ornaments are then placed on the holiday tree in the Rockford Memorial Hospital lobby beginning December 5.
A special Memory Lights ceremony will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, December 18, in the Rockford Memorial Hospital dining rooms. There will be a brief remembrance service, holiday carols and time for fellowship with other families. You may take your ornament home after the ceremony. If you are unable to attend, your ornament will be mailed to you after the holidays.
Memory Light ornaments are $5 each, and orders will be accepted until Friday, December 15. Ornaments ordered by that date will be hung on the tree at Rockford Memorial Hospital. Ornaments may also be purchased at the Rockford Memorial Hospital Gift Shop.
For more information or to place your order, contact Aliene Lewis at 282-1275 or Liz Schultz at 282-1503.
