No parent can ever prepare for the loss of a child. The death of a child is devastating and often referred to as the worst experience a parent can endure. How long your child lived does not determine the size of your loss; the loss is profound at every age.
PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center chaplains will conduct a “Service of Remembrance” Saturday, October 12, 2019, for all families grieving the loss of a child. The service will be held at 10:00 AM at Evergreen Memorial Gardens (1101 NE 112th Avenue, Vancouver) in the Little Angels Memorial Garden.
“This is a time to remember the little ones, to support their families and any families who have experienced the death of a child,” said Susan Lanford, M.Div, Director of Mission Services at PeaceHealth Southwest.
The annual service is provided by PeaceHealth Southwest Spiritual Care Services, PeaceHealth Family Birth Center, PeaceHealth Hope Bereavement Services, and Evergreen Memorial Gardens. For more information please contact PeaceHealth Southwest Spiritual Care at 360.514.2257.
