This year marks the 31st anniversary of our Community Candlelight Memorial Ceremony. For three decades Bridges has provided an opportunity for those with heavy hearts to do something all too rare and yet so essential; to publicly acknowledge and mourn our losses and journey together toward healing. This poignant and intimate event features music, a brief reflection, luminaries around the lake, a memory photo table, warm beverages, and a tent with seating for your convenience.
As you likely know all too well, grief has no timetable, no script. So, we invite you to join us, along with family and friends, to celebrate the memory of your loved ones wherever you find yourself in the grieving process; whenever the loss may have taken place through the years.
Bridges is here for you; to acknowledge your loss; to celebrate the lives that have touched you deeply; to walk gently together in hope toward healing and growth.
