The annual Tree of Memories Remembrance Service will start at 7 p.m. Dec. 15 at the Bryan-Braker Funeral Home Chapel, 1850 W. Texas St.
The Rev. Rick Stonestreet from Calvary Baptist Church in Fairfield will join Bryan-Braker Funeral Home staff in remembering all loved ones who have died and to offer support to families during the holiday season, according to an announcement for the service.
Each family will light a candle symbolizing their memories and the warmth of shared love. The remembrance service will include holiday music, and a reading of the names of the deceased loved ones being while a family member receives a memorable ornament. A reception to follow.
The Tree of Memories service happens each December and pays tribute to the lives of loved ones lost during the last year. The service provides an opportunity for families and friends who have recently lost a loved one to share their experiences with others who are grieving during this holiday season.
Everyone is invited to attend regardless of when their loss was, or if their family was served by another funeral home, according to the announcement.
Those who plan to attend are asked to send a photo of their loved one who has died, for inclusion on a video tribute, by email by Dec. 9 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
