The holidays are a time of joyful celebration for many, but for those who have recently lost a loved one, the time of year can feel extremely lonely and difficult. To help families who have lost people in their lives over the last year, McKenzie Funeral Services will be holding its 3rd Annual Evergreen Christmas Remembrance Ceremony in partnership with the Paul Sugar Palliative Support Foundation.
Here, families will have the chance to gather and receive support from friends and family, while enjoying peaceful music, and refreshments. The Evergreen Christmas Remembrance Ceremony is open to anyone in the community that’s lost a loved one,” says Mark McKenzie, Community Relations Director at McKenzie Funeral Services, whose family has been in the funeral services business since 1946. “At the ceremony, my father George McKenzie along with respected community physician, Dr. Paul Sugar, will share words of hope and comfort to those attending,” he continues.
Volunteers from the Dr. Paul Sugar Foundation will also be present to help attendees with bereavement support.
“It’s really a special event for those families in our community. It lets them know that they’re not alone in their grief”.
The 2018 event will take place at 6:00 p.m. on November 27 at the Capilano Golf and Country Club: Stanley Thompson Room. All who wish to remember a loved one are welcome. To RSVP, contact McKenzie Funeral Services at 604-926-5121 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
