Memorial Services in Fredericksburg & Manassas

Medi Hospice invites the community to join their annual memorial service on Tuesday, May 8, 2018 in Fredericksburg, Virginia and Tuesday May 15, 2018 in Manassas, Virginia. The service celebrates the lives of those who were cared for by hospice, but also all loved ones from our area who have died.
“This is a special event for our hospice team, to honor the lives they have touched,” said Chaplain Brent Little. “This ceremony allows us to offer support and understanding to anyone that has lost a loved one, making us a stronger community.”
The death of a loved one is, for most of us, one of the most difficult life events we will ever have to endure. Because grief can be so painful and overwhelming, we are sometimes scared into believing that, in order to heal, we must sever the bond we had with our loved one. Quite the opposite is true. By maintaining that special bond, by commemorating the lives of loved ones, by keeping their memory alive, we are better able to find that special place in our heart that is reserved only for them. The relationship continues—just in a different way.

A special part of the service is the lighting of the memorial candles in honor of loved ones that have died during the past year.
Following the memorial service, everyone is invited to a time of fellowship.

We hope you will join us for this meaningful service.
