Hospice memorial provides chance to remember

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Sunday marked the 25th annual Hospice Memorial Service at the First Unitarian Universalist Church in Burlington.

Family and friends lit candles as they shared memories of loved ones. The event is held every year at hospices throughout the state to celebrate the lives of those who have passed.

"There's a lot of tears, there's also a lot of joy and singing, people who were there at such an important time in their lives and so I think it's just a really nice gathering in both ways," said
Angel Means with the Visiting Nurse Association.

The event ended with song from the hospice choir and a reception.
