Memorial Illumination Events

“While providing exceptional care you also comfort family members and address their many needs. I could not have asked for a more sacred and loving atmosphere. Thank you for such a meaningful gift.”

Honoring Loved Ones

Grieving the death of a loved one is a natural part of healing. The oldest and most experienced hospice in the region, Hospice of the Piedmont’s Center for Grief & Healing provides mourners an understanding and supportive environment in which to process their grief in the year following a loved one’s death.

Our beautiful, non-denominational winter Memorial Illumination and spring memorial services offer healing, growth, and comfort for community members who have lost loved ones.

Please join us for a beautiful, light-filled ceremony in your community. This non-denominational, candlelight service is open to the public and provides a meaningful opportunity to celebrate those whose lives you’ve shared. No prior relationship to this or any hospice is required to attend. Donations are not required for attendance.

Community members are invited to ‘light a light’ to honor and remember the lives of loved ones. For each contribution, a light will shine at the event and a tribute card will be sent to you so that you can let family and friends know about the luminary given in their loved one’s name. With each gift, you are not only celebrating the lives of those dear to you, you’re also making a difference in the lives of others. Your donation sustains Hospice of the Piedmont in its mission to positively transform the way people view and experience serious illness, dying, and grief. For donation information, call 434-972-3568.
