Hospice of Southern Illinois will host its annual Tree of Life ceremonies this year on Sunday, Dec. 3, from 2 to 3 p.m. at the The Weingarten, 1780 Illinois Route 15, Belleville, and at The Journey, 9835 Old Bainbridge Trail, Marion, Ill.
The ceremonies allow families and the public to remember and honor loved ones they have lost and that are special to them, celebrating the lives of those they have lost by placing a ribboned card on a lighted tree, the Tree of Life. The ceremony includes holiday music, reading the names of loved ones, and light refreshments all centered around a lighted, decorated tree and the people who come to celebrate life.
Hospice of Southern Illinois is a not-for-profit hospice program serving 27 counties in southern Illinois since 1981.
For more information or to RSVP for the Tree of Life ceremonies, contact Lisa Phillipson, 1 800) 233-1708, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
