Angels Remembered
The holidays can be a difficult time. Each Christmas, Hospice has Angels Remembered trees in several locations across the region. Join us and place an angel on the tree in memory of your loved one who has died. Learn more…

Resource Library
Come in and browse or borrow from our library which includes many resources on topics related to dying and grief. Many people find that books and videos about death and dying can help provide a new perspective, much needed information, and reassurance that the grief we feel is “normal”.
