COVID-19 Remembrance Wall

While it's true that memorials represent a life lost on this earth, they also represent the importance of that life to the living. Tributes and memorials are a wealth of healing and support for those who have just lost a loved one.

It is our human nature to want to remember those who have gone before us to be with the Lord. It symbolizes acknowledgment and closeness and sometimes the road to healing, acceptance and peace, begins with remembrance.

Mara Clingingsmith
Just 58 years old when she passed, Mara was a leader in our business community and a tireless volunteer. At the start of the pandemic, she learned to sew and made hundreds of masks that were distributed in our area. Her contagious smile and enthusiastic spirit are greatly missed.
