Ascension Funeral Home is hosting its Second Annual Candle Light Remembrance Service as a way for the community to honor loved ones. This year's event will include words from Pastor Ken Spivey, Deacon Brent Duplessis, Funeral Director Walter “Pete” Cole and administrator Deidra Cole.
“We share with the families that come joy, hope and peace for the holiday season,” Deidra Cole said. “It's just a real solemn memorial service to remember their loved ones at this time of year because this time of year can be very difficult for families that have lost loved ones. We just wanted to let them know that we are here to support them and to let them know that we care.”
Cole continued that the hope is for a bigger turnout this year than in previous years. Nearly 200 invitations were sent out to families for the Christmas memorial.
“We hope that the families do come because the holidays can be really difficult for them,” she said.
The Candle Light Remembrance Service will be held on Dec. 10 at 7 p.m. at the Ascension Funeral Home.
