No Matter How Small Memorial Event
October 15 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Believing that all life is sacred, Hagarty Waychoff Grarup Funeral Service and Guiding Star Cedar Valley invite you to the 2nd Annual No Matter How Small Memorial Event to assist in commemorating the lives lost due to miscarriage and infant loss. We invite anyone who has been touched by miscarriage or infant loss to join us at this event in memorial of your child, relative, or other loved ones.
At the service, we will have a few community members praying and speaking over all the little lives lost, whether it was 2 days ago or 20 years ago. There will also be a burial service for infants in the care of Hagarty Waychoff Grarup.
We’re excited to have our Angelversary Wall up again this year, where babies’ names can be written down and placed on the wall for them to be remembered. We will have this wall up in our Guiding Star office throughout the month of October for anyone to stop by and place a name on the wall. Our staff will be praying over this wall each week throughout October.
Please note: This is an in-person event. Masks will be encouraged, and social distancing guidelines will be followed as best as possible. Live streaming (on our Guiding Star Cedar Valley Facebook page) will be available for those who are not yet comfortable with public events. Privacy for those grieving will also be respected and camera placement will be carefully considered.
