Remembering our loved ones

November 30th, 2017

 

The Westmead Memorial Service (Palliative Care, Oncology, Haematology and Renal & Supportive Care) was held this morning at the John Loewenthal Auditorium – Westmead Hospital.

This is a service of remembrance and thanksgiving that is held twice a year for family members and friends who have passed away at Westmead Hospital.

Families, friends and staff have the opportunity to remember loved ones during a service that offers readings, time for reflection, a candle lighting ceremony and songs of remembrance.


Light a Candle” –  Adapted from the poem by Paul Alexander
Performed by Ray Wilcox, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Palliative Care.

Nati Roses has been supporting the Westmead Memorial Services since it began in 2011 through their in-kind donation of beautiful roses to Westmead Medical Research Foundation (WMRF). Each family member or friend gets to take a rose in memory of their loved one. Thank you to the team at Nati for their generous and on-going support.
