JUNE - Annual Memorial Services
Sanford Hospice Luverne remembers those who have died during the past year while in the hospice program at an Annual Memorial Service. Family members are invited to attend a short dedication ceremony which includes music and reading the names of those being remembered by the hospice team. Families will receive an invitation in the mail with the date and time of the service.
DECEMBER - Hospice Tree of Lights
Sanford Hospice Luverne holds its Trees of Lights program in five area communities. The evergreen tree is a symbol of life and hope. Decorated with the lights of the holiday season, it is transformed into a wonderful community memorial. Donations of $5 per bulb will light a symbolic light on a Christmas tree "in memory" or "in honor" of a friend or loved one. The trees are lit during a dedication ceremony held at each location, and remain lit throughout the holiday season. Hospice family members and the public are invited to attend.
Memorial Bricks may be engraved and added to the memorial pathway in the garden at The Cottage. Cost: $120 each brick.
Angel Pendants are available for purchase in memory of a loved one. Inquire at the hospice office for sales.
