Healing Center and Clock Funeral Home bring ‘The Heart Remembers’ to remember and honor loved ones lost to COVID.
July 6, 2021, West Michigan – Harbor Hospice and Clock Funeral Home are partnering to present a special community remembrance to honor those lives lost during the pandemic. “The Heart Remembers” will be an open house-style event, Wednesday, August 18th, with a special time at 5:30 pm for Pause, Reflection and Gratitude.
“Families have shared with us that the inability to both be present with their loved ones in their final hours, and not being able to honor their life lived with friends and family has left an indelible ache in their heart,” said Dale and Jodi Clock, owners of Clock Funeral Home. “For this reason, we joined forces with the Scolnik Healing Center of Harbor Hospice to help families celebrate a life lived, with others who have experienced the same pain. It’s important to know that this is for ‘anyone’ who experienced a loss. This is not limited to “where” the death occurred, if hospice was involved, or what death care provider was chosen. It’s about coming together to help heal the heart.”
Keepsakes will be provided to the first 150 attendees. Live music and refreshments will round out the event. The community is encouraged to bring leashed, well-mannered pets with them.
“Our communities have been affected in so many ways by COVID and many who have lost loved ones to this horrible virus have not been able to have services or get together with others for comfort and meaningful support. This is an opportunity for anyone who is grieving any loved one, including a pet, who died during COVID to come together and honor them and remember them,” said Beth Bolthouse, grief counselor, Scolnik Healing Center of Harbor Hospice.
