KNOX COUNTY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — A service remembering those that have died over the last year is being planned at Good Samaritan Hospice.
The annual Spring Memorial Service is for family members of patients that have been served by the hospice over the last year. The service will be held at the hospice located at 601 S. Ninth Street in Vincennes on Monday, May 2 at 6:30 p.m.
“This event each year is a time to remember and a time to gather as a community,” said Jane Russell, Director of Hospice. “Death ends a life, not a relationship. A memorial service can help family and friends search for meaning after the loss of a loved one.”
Those that wish to have their loved one’s name read and/or to RSVP for the service, can call Good Samaritan Hospice at 812-885-8035 by April 29. Members do not have to be present to have a name read. The service will be held outdoors, weather permitting, and light snacks will be served immediately following the service.
The memorial service will include a candlelight vigil, prayers, songs, and a reading of names of those that have passed.
