On March 10, 2019, we gathered to honor and remember the men and women we’ve had the privilege to serve during the last weeks of their lives. About 80 family members and friends, volunteers, donors, staff and others joined in a program of spoken thoughts, readings, music and songs that warmed and comforted hearts.
In the candle ceremony we read out the names of every man and woman while family, friends, caregiving staff and volunteers came forward and lit candles in their honor. The candle photo was taken after the program during the slideshow of photos provided by families (see photo gallery below).
Special thanks go to the First Christian Church of Torrance for hosting our gathering, to Dan Hudson and Christine Campisi for organizing and leading, to Anne Destabelle, Sara Fernandez and Nena Francois for their songs and music that moved us, to Christine Campisi, David Kuroda and Dan Hudson for their readings that inspired us, to Steve Fietz for his tireless support and to Nick Scott for handling the audio/visual systems so capably.
