Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice Spring Service of Remembrance

Every year come springtime, Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice has its Service of Remembrance to honor those who have passed under the care of hospice in the preceding year. It is also a pivotal time for friends and family to come and re-connect with hospice staff they know while sharing memories of their loved ones.

This year, the service was held at The Congregational Church in Wolfeboro. The Tides of Harmony Choral Group of Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice sang lovely and comforting melodies while the names of those who have passed were read aloud and a candle was lit in their honor.

Staff members took time to talk with families and offer support and comfort while inviting them to enjoy some of the many baked goods provided by generous Hospice Volunteers.

In Laconia, the Service of Remembrance is held every November and also honors those who have passed in the preceding year.

Hospice Director and Chief Clinical Nurse Jennifer Laramie speaks of the service as “A truly moving experience as names are read and loved ones come to light their candles. It is a form of healing while also still mourning. It is one of the many ways we connect with loved ones within our Hospice program”.
