Service of Remembrance 2019

Service of Remembrance 2019 (Event)
Sun Oct 06, 2019 - 1:00 pm-3:00 pm PT

Helping After Neonatal Death (HAND) invites you to come together with other HAND families to honor your precious babies in loving ceremony. The service will have music, poetry readings, and a potluck meal afterward where you can reconnect with old friends or make new ones with individuals who have experienced the loss of a baby. Your entire family 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 our beloved missing family members.

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 “2019 SOR” in the description or comments.

If you wish to be included in the printed program, please RSVP or donate by September 6, 2019.

Send RSVP no longer allowed for this event.
