Visiting Nurses will honor loved ones

Wilton’s Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County will honor the patients and families it has served during this past year with an ecumenical Celebration of Life memorial service on Thursday, June 9, from 5:45 to 7:15 p.m., in the Great Hall at Christ & Holy Trinity Church, 75 Church Lane, in Westport.

The memorial is open to anyone who has lost a loved one and will begin with an interfaith service at 5:45.

The service will include readings, music and acts of remembrance, as well as a candle-lighting ceremony conducted by the Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County team of nurses, counselors and caregivers. A reception will follow the service.  

“It is important to celebrate the lives of our loved ones and to give thanks for all they have meant to us,” said Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County Director Christine Pfeffer. “We wish to express our gratitude and to acknowledge that our loved ones remain in our hearts.”
