In Memory Of/In Honor Of

Paying tribute to the memory of a loved one or the caring service of a hospice employee is a touching way to remember and honor them. Tribute gifts (In Memory Of/In Honor Of) are acknowledged with a card to the individual being recognized or the family member of the person being memorialized (note: gift amounts are not disclosed).
In Memory Of
If you have lost a family member or friend, giving a memorial gift provides a lasting way to commemorate their life while also providing support for others in our care.
In Honor Of
Honor gifts are donations made to recognize the importance of people in your life or the work of a doctor, nurse or other staff member for their exceptional service. An honor gift is a meaningful way to show your appreciation while sustaining hospice care in our community so others may be helped in the future. When our staff and clinical teams receive positive recognition from those we serve, it lifts their spirits and contributes to their mental well-being.
