Moments of Remembrance

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)-St. Bernards Hospice annual "Moments of Remembrance" took place on Thursday at St. Bernards Auditorium.

Region 8 residents filed in the building to put Christmas ornaments on a tree in honor of loved ones now gone.

Director of the Hospice House for St. Bernards, Donna Lowe, says they feel this event is a chance for those family members left behind to begin healing, "It makes a difference because we have people coming back together to talk about their loved ones." Lowe said. "To share that nobody's alone and we're all in this together."

People gathered together to talk about their family members and share memories with others.

Lowe says they've noticed the event continue to grow over the years.

"It's so much bigger now than it was when we first started years ago. We began in the beginning with just a few people and today around two hundred people are attending."

Lowe says they just want people to know that there's someone whose there for them during this difficult time.

"You're not alone. Grief and loss happen to everybody and St. Bernards Hospice is not all about the loss, we're about living every day of their life."

The "Moments of Remembrance" has been taking place at St. Bernards for seventeen years.
