4th Annual Memorial Tree of Doves Lighting Ceremony

Posted on: Dec 19, 2014

The holiday season evokes memories of loved ones who have touched our lives. It is an important time of year to honor friends and family who are no longer with us, and keep them in our hearts and prayers during this special time.
Each year, Pathways Skilled Nursing Center, offers the Memorial Tree Lighting Service as a way to help the family members honor the cherished memories of those no longer with us. Each family member may write a special message with their loved one’s name attached to a Dove ornament to place on the tree of lights. Pastor Jack, PPh Chaplain, gives a special blessing and all in attendance enjoy refreshments, singing holiday songs and good company. Thank you to all who participated in this heartfelt ceremony.


What Residents Say

"In my nine years at PPH, I’ve grown to like it very much. At first, I felt like a stranger and then as I began to talk to people, we increasingly became good friends. A way to meet people is to join clubs. I’m now part of the PPH Auxiliary. I love helping with their flea markets because you never know what you can find. Recently, I’ve joined an evening quilting class. I love that I can continue to enjoy my life outside of PPH while experiencing the offers here.…especially the pool! Everything is just so convenient.

– Lucille Hite, Independent Living resident

What Families Say

"My mom is sooo happy at PPH, I can’t even describe it in strong enough words. She’s met so many new friends and these ladies do EVERYTHING together! She sees Dad every day in Pathways, but can have her life too. She’s gone to so many activities and I think I’ve already been to Scoops with her at least 15 times. She loves the dining room and Bistro too. My sister, Ilene, and I are so delighted that Mom is happy.......Wow, it feels like Mom’s been there about 2 years—but it’s only 2 months!! That’s how comfortable and natural it feels for her – and for all of us.
