The Hospice of Natchitoches and Many held its annual memorial service at the chapel of Natchitoches’ First Baptist Church Thursday, November 14. The service is an annual event that commemorates the memories of those who were under the hospice’s care who passed away in the previous year.
The families, friends and loved ones gathered together to share memories. In a moving ceremony, a candle was lit and then the flame was passed from person to person as they named the individual in whose memory they were attending the service. Buster Jordan, the Hospice’s Minister of Music, led the congregation in “Amazing Grace” as the ceremony concluded.
