Home Hospice is offering two opportunities for the public to participate in Memorial Services in January.  The services will be held to honor the memory of loved ones through song, writings and a balloon release.  The first service is scheduled for Monday, January 13 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. at Muenster State Bank, 1601 US Highway 82 in Gainesville.  The second service is scheduled for Monday, January 20 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. at the Home Hospice of Grayson County office, 505 W. Center Street in Sherman. 

Home Hospice Bereavement Coordinator Jolene Senek, LBSW, CT, GC-C, says, “Please join us as we celebrate the lives of those with whom you have walked—your loved ones, family and friends.  If you like, you may bring a favorite picture or memento of your loved one to display.”

The memorial service is held quarterly for bereaved family members, volunteers, staff, as well as all in the public who wish to participate.  Names of those people to be remembered will be read and balloons released in their memory.  The event is open to all persons regardless of whether they had a loved one on Home Hospice services.

If you have questions about the Memorial Service, you may call Jolene Senek, Bereavement Coordinator at 903.868.9315 or email jolene.senek@homehospice.org.
