All experiencing loss, missing a loved one invited to attend Saturday, Dec. 7 event

PMG FILE PHOTO - The Time of Remembering on Dec. 7 will feature music by harpist from Sacred Flight, a reading of names, the lighting of candles and a memorial video.For those missing a loved one during the holiday season, Mt. Hood Hospice will host its annual Time of Remembering from 2-3:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, at Sandy Baptist Church, 34435 S.E. Jarl Road, Boring.

The event features music by a harpist from Sacred Flight, a reading of names, the lighting of candles and a memorial video all in the spirit of paying homage to those who are no longer with us.

"We hope to nurture a positive response to remembering someone they lost," said event coordinator Holly Mulcahey. "Our hearts are big and tender because of the holidays and how people have experienced loss."

People are welcome to submit photos to be featured in the memorial video by mail to Mt. Hood Hospice, P.O. Box 1269, Sandy 97055, or via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., no later than Friday, Nov. 22.

"We do this as a way to serve the community, whether they've been with Mt. Hood Hospice or not," Mulcahey said. "It's hard to tell who's grieving of the people you just meet around town, and this is a welcoming, safe couple of moments to know you're not alone in this. Tears and/or smiles are welcome and Kleenex are provided."

Mulcahey plans to remember her father, a World War II naval officer, this year during her first year organizing the event, even though he passed away years ago.

"I thought this year I'm going to participate," she said. "There's no right or wrong time to remember someone."

Hospice Chaplain Fred Vogel will speak at the event. Refreshments will be provided following the service.

This event is not religiously affiliated.
