Ornaments memorialize loved ones

Families are invited to memorialize and honor loved ones with inscribed tree ornaments that will be displayed during Providence Health and Services' annual “Light Up a Life” ceremonies. The ornaments will adorn memorial trees in Providence hospitals and other community locations throughout the Christmas season. Upcoming events are set for 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 18, at Providence Milwaukie Hospital and 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 19 at Providence Portland Medical Center. Providence Hospice sponsors the event.

With each donation to the Light Up a Life tree, the name of the person being honored or remembered will be inscribed on a heart-shaped ornament and placed on a tree. The names of those honored will be read during the ceremony, and families are encouraged to take the ornaments home with them afterward or leave them on the trees to share with the community. Some of the funds raised will purchase equipment and services that are not covered by the hospice patients’ insurance.
