Remembering Lost Loved Ones This Christmas


Many of us greet the holiday season with regrets mixed with the merriment. Regrets — and sadness — that lost loved ones are no longer with us.

The 17th annual Celebration of Life is a way to honor those we have lost.

Hospice Compassus and the Rim Country Hospice Foundation invite the public to a Celebration of Life at 6 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 5 at the Mountain Bible Church, 302 E. Rancho Road.

The Celebration of Life is free of charge and open to the community.

The evening includes remembrances, music and a special tree lighting ceremony. Gerardo’s Firewood Café provides a delicious, full-course meal.

Personalized crystal ornaments can be ordered for $12 per ornament.

Each participant is asked to bring a can of food for the St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank.

Anyone interested in attending or ordering ornaments should contact Hospice Compassus at (928) 472-6340 and to make a reservation for the event.
