"No Matter How Small"
A Celebration of Life Event
TUESDAY OCTOBER 15, 2019
Mt. Olivet Cemetary, 3912 W. 4th Street, Waterloo, IA 50702
This Ecumenical Service will provide a memorial and burial of the infants in the care of Hagarty-Waychoff- Grarup Funeral Service as well as a place for anyone touched by Miscarriage and/or Infant Loss to join in honoring the lives of those they have lost. The prayer and committal service will last about 40 minutes but all are welcome to stay as long as they need for their own healing.
Why Support this Event?
You may have already been aware, and you might not have… this subject can be difficult to approach – so often we dismiss the loss, or struggle finding the right words to say; leaving those who have been through a miscarriage, stillbirth, or loss of a baby after birth feeling very isolated and unsure of how to cope with and grieve through the experience. This doesn’t help these women and families through the healing process after sustaining this kind of loss. We wanted to create a place to remember, to grieve, and to celebrate each little life, “no matter how small”. A place where we know we are not alone in our pain. A place where we can start to heal.
That pregnancy mattered.
That baby mattered.
