Grieving is a lengthy and difficult process that can feel overwhelming during the holiday season.
You may find yourself missing your loved one more than usual as you remember fond holiday memories you shared together. You might even find yourself wondering, “How will I make it through this time of year?”
People often look for signs to connect with their loved one. For example, a cardinal visiting your yard is often said to be a visitor from heaven, or when you hear a certain song or smell a specific scent, you may perceive it as a sign from your loved one above.
As we celebrate holidays special to our loved ones, special connections occur through scents, decorations, food & music.
This December, join Tabitha’s Bereavement Team in lighting an angel in memory of those we have served at Tabitha Hospice throughout the year of 2023.
Let this angel remind you that you aren’t alone in your grief, and the lights remind us that light and hope shine brightly in the darkness that grief and loss can bring. Angels will stay lit throughout December.
If you want to see the angels, they will be at Journey House in Lincoln and Foster Park in York.
Weather permitting, join us for a dedication service:
- Friday, Dec. 1 @ 4 p.m., Foster Park in York, NE
- Friday, Dec. 9 @ 4 p.m., Tabitha’s Journey House back patio in Lincoln, NE
Please RSVP by calling 402.486.8506. If you are unable to attend the service but would like an angel ornament, please contact your Tabitha Bereavement Coordinator.
If you need to talk about your grief or learn more about grief coping tools, please contact us.
