HUNTINGTON — The holidays can be a difficult time for those who have recently suffered the loss of a loved one. Cabell Huntington Hospital wants to support healing by offering an annual memorial service, An Evening of Memories.

“This special event is a time when families of loved ones who have passed can participate in a remembrance service and share the company of others who have lost loved ones,” said Teresa Sexton, director of nursing and senior services at Cabell Huntington Hospital. “It is a time of healing and joy as we celebrate loved ones and how they made a difference in our lives and the lives of others.”

Participants will take part in the annual tradition of decorating ornaments and hanging them on a remembrance tree.

Anyone who has lost a loved one over the past year is invited to the free event at 7 p.m. Dec. 16 in the Harless Auditorium at Cabell Huntington Hospital. For more information, call 304-526-2695.
