PHOTOS: Third Annual Family Reunion BBQ
Silverado North Houston Hospice families get together for a beautiful day of remembrance and fun
October 17 was a perfect day to be outdoors, helping to make Silverado's 3rd Annual Family BBQ and Walk a great turnout and memorable time for everyone.
Several people participated in the one mile memorial walk on the beautiful paths at Mercer Arboretum. Our favorite volunteer band, The "b-sharps" provided the music and Sabra Egbert, Jerry Evenson and Blake Greene barbecued a great feast!
With the theme for this year being "time in a bottle", Greg Brown gave an uplifting talk. This was followed by a creative sand project in which young and old each captured the memory of their loved one using colored sand a glass bottle. The different colors represented characteristics, memories of the person they knew or the life they shared with them.
Everyone walked away with a unique memory to take home and a smile on their face!
"In search of my mother's garden, I found my own."
“More than anything I have learned that we are all frail people, vulnerable and wounded; it is just that some of us are more clever at concealing it than others! And of course the great joke is that it is O.K. to be frail and wounded because that is the way the almighty transcendent God made people."
On Veteran's Day this year, we ask you just take a moment...
