Service of Remembrance 2022 (Virtual Meeting)
Sun Oct 08, 2023 - 1:00 pm-3:00 pm PT
Helping After Neonatal Death (HAND) invites you to join in ceremony with other HAND families to remember the beloved children still in our hearts. We will have music, poetry readings, and a social hour for sharing with others who have also experienced the loss of a baby. Family and friends are welcome to participate in this memorial celebration.
The health and safety of the HAND community continues to be our highest priority. As with the previous two years, this year’s event will be held virtually over Zoom (zoom.us). Meeting details will be provided by email one week prior to the event.
Please RSVP by September 9, 2022 to allow for shipping program and keepsakes prior to the event. Responses received after this date are welcome, but will not be included in the printed program.
All ages welcome
We acknowledge that after the loss of a child it can be painful to see other children. Please remember that children present at the service have suffered the loss of a brother or sister or may be subsequent births. Parents who have children in attendance are sensitive to the fact that there are newly-bereaved families present. We all attend the service for the same reason: to honor the babies we so dearly miss.
HAND gratefully accepts donations from parents, friends, and family members in honor of a beloved family member. You can make a memorial donation from our website, or write a check payable to HAND and mail to HAND Service of Remembrance, P.O. Box 341, Los Gatos, CA 95031. For memorial donations, please note the child(ren) and parent(s) names and “2022 SOR” in the description or comments.
If you wish to be included in the printed program, please RSVP or donate by September 9, 2022.
