Virtual Remembrance Ceremony Brings Us Together in Grief
We are not alone in our heartache and grief when we lose a loved one, though our isolation because of physical distancing can make it feel as if we are. The Denver Hospice grief counselors, Lauren Mininger and Pippa Tucker, guided a candlelight remembrance ritual to help those whose loved one has passed find support and community.
We held a virtual ceremony together, and viewed the video on June 9 to remember our loved ones together. This meaningful but simple ceremony can be done from anywhere.
Until we are able to host everyone again in person, please feel free to incorporate this ceremony into your grief journey. You will need a quiet space, two candles – a smaller candle like a tea light, and a larger-size candle, a lighter, and ten minutes to focus on your loved one. Consider turning your phone on silent, turning down lights and finding a comfortable place to settle in to focus your reflections.
The Denver Hospice’s Grief Center is open to support you during this difficult time, or any time. Please reach out:
