Celebrate A Life – Stories
Grief is a Shared Journey
Celebrate a Life offers a unique opportunity for you to honour a loved one during the holiday season – a difficult time of year for many dealing with grief.
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.
