“Moms, dads, siblings and supportive friends are encouraged to join us in the celebration of these precious lives,” said Chaplain Mike Nishimura. “This community cares and supports grieving families in times of need but we also continue to remember their loss as days and years pass.”

The ceremony will culminate in a walk around the hospital’s Joel Drive wellness track as a celebration for their life.
