[Muskegon, Michigan] The Bob & Merle Scolnik Healing Center of Harbor Hospice invites the community to join us for the 5th Annual Community Remembrance at Heritage Memorial Garden in downtown Muskegon. This meaningful ceremony includes a program of music, readings and floral bulb planting to help individuals and families in our community both mourn the death and honor the life of a loved one.
The Community Remembrance will be held on Monday, September 24, 2018 at 6:00 pm at the Heritage Memorial Garden located at 545 W. Western Avenue in downtown Muskegon.
Pam Babbitt developed the garden in honor of her late husband. It is a beautiful haven in downtown Muskegon and an incredible representation of the love that remains even after a person dies. Feedback from previous years included comments like “I can’t thank you enough for this type of venue and event to keep our loved ones’ memory alive. It means so much to me” and “I love watching the flowers come up in the spring.” These comments really give expression to the many and varied needs of grievers. In our culture, mourning is becoming increasingly taboo. Grief is a natural and normal response to loss, and mourning is how one heals. It is our privilege to offer this opportunity to mourn and heal in an environment of acceptance and understanding.
If you would like to participate in this meaningful event, please RSVP by Monday, September 17, 2018 by calling Harbor Hospice at 231.728.3442 or 800.497.9559.
