Celebrating Life…

February 16, 2018

At Palm Garden of Tampa, we celebrate life in many ways. Today, Celebrating Life… A Memorial honored our family and friends who have passed into eternal life. Encouraging words, memories, laughter, and tears of joy filled the air as our beloved residents and family were remembered.

The nautical bell rang after each person was respectfully named reverberating thoughts and blessings of precious times always to be cherished. As life continues both eternally and here with us, we all carried the beauty of each life by accepting a white rose. The inspiring words of God with worshipful music allowed those present to experience the respectful solicitude of how majestic life really is.

We will never forget the goodness and the joy brought to us as we continue this journey at Palm Garden.

Reverend Jerry C. Kittredge+
