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!
"My loved one will be with me in these bittersweet moments of deepening relationship..."
"It isn’t for the moment you are struck that you need courage, but for the long uphill climb back to sanity and faith and security."
It is almost a physical sensation, especially if death has come suddenly and unexpectedly – almost a sense of having the wind knocked out of you...
