Holiday Memorial Service Held to Remember Babies

Bronson Bereavement Services is hosting an annual Holiday Memorial Service for those grieving the loss of a baby. The event, sponsored by the Bronson SHARE Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support Group, will be held on Friday, December 2, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the auditorium of the Gilmore Center for Health Education on Bronson Methodist Hospital’s North Campus.

This special event is open to anyone grieving the loss of a baby due to miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth, SIDS or other perinatal loss. The memorial service offers a message of hope, candle lighting ceremony, music, poetry and more performed by members of the SHARE support group. All attendees are invited to light a candle and hang ornaments in memory of their “angel babies” who have died.

“The event was created to bring people together in remembrance. Our goal is to provide hope and healing to hurting families during the holiday season,” said Brenda Terburg-Fawley, bereavement coordinator at Bronson. “This is an opportunity to remember your child — even if it has been years since his or her death.”

 

A gathering and refreshments will follow the service.
