Hospice of Southern Illinois to hold Tree of Life ceremony Dec. 3

Hospice of Southern Illinois hosts annual Tree of Life ceremonies each year. These ceremonies allow families and the public to remember and honor loved ones they have lost and that are special to them, celebrating the lives of those they have lost by placing a ribboned card on a lighted tree, the Tree of Life. The holidays can be an especially difficult time for people trying to cope with loss. We have hosted this event to support them during this difficult time. The heartwarming ceremony includes holiday music, reading the names of loved ones, and light refreshments all centered around a lighted, decorated tree and the people who come to celebrate life.

Both Ceremonies are on Sunday, December 3, 2017, from 2:00 P.M. – 3:00 P.M.
