Big Bend Hospice Remembers Those We've Lost



In the March/April issue of Tallahassee Magazine, Big Bend Hospice paid tribute to the generous people who donated to the 2016 Tree of Remembrance in honor of loved ones who have passed away. Big Bend Hospice’s message to the contributors follows.

Life is a blessing, memory a treasure.
We remember those we miss beyond measure.

We pay tribute to those we have loved and lost by remembering and reliving the joy we once shared. Sincere thanks to everyone who made a contribution to the Big Bend Hospice Tree of Remembrance; in memory of deceased dear ones and, in honor of their families. Every gift we receive brings us closer to achieving our vision– that no one should face death or bereavement without the care and support they need. In the last 33 years, Big Bend Hospice has never turned anyone away for financial reasons. Thanks to your generosity and kind support, we never will.

We honor here the names* of those remembered
at the Tree of Remembrance 2016
