Celebrate A Life – Stories

Grief is a Shared Journey

Grief can be the loneliest feeling at any time of year. But in a global pandemic, with holidays approaching, grief is even lonelier.

That’s why Victoria Hospice invites everyone to come together to celebrate the lives of people we have lost – whether this year or long ago.

Join us in this virtual gathering of memories and reflections by reading stories here and by sharing your own. Please contact Debbie Greenway by email or call 250-519-1744 if you would like to participate.
