Service of Remembrance 2018

Service of Remembrance 2018 (Event)
Sun Oct 07, 2018 - 1:00 pm-3:00 pm


Quinlan Community Center (Cupertino Room)
10185 N. Stelling Rd
Cupertino, CA

Helping After Neonatal Death (HAND) invites you to come together with other families and celebrate the memories of your precious babies. The service will have music, poetry readings, and a potluck meal afterward where you can reconnect with old friends or make new ones with families who have experienced the loss of a baby. Families and friends are welcome to attend this memorial celebration.

We realize that after the loss of a child it can be painful to see other children. Please remember that the children present at the service have suffered the loss of a brother or sister or may be subsequent children. Parents who have children in attendance are very sensitive to the fact that there are newly-bereaved families present. We all attend the service for the same reason: to honor these special family members who have died.

HAND will provide beverages. Please bring a potluck dish to share.

You can also make a donation. HAND gratefully accepts donations from parents, friends, and family members in memory of a beloved child. To be included in the event program, please note the child’s name and “2018 Service of Remembrance” in the description or comments.
