We want to pay tribute to those 59 individuals and let them know that the Rose Hills family is keeping them in our thoughts and prayers.
Whittier, CA (PRWEB) October 03, 2017
The neon-lit Rose Hills sign has been a landmark in Whittier since it was first installed on a hilltop in the 1940s, overlooking the expansive Rose Hills Memorial Park. But starting tonight and continuing through October 5, starting at 10:08 pm (signifying the time the shooting began), the sign will go dark for 59 minutes, remembering the shooting victims in Las Vegas.
“As an organization who deals with pain of death on a daily basis, our collective hearts ache for the victims who tragically lost their lives or were wounded, as well as their families, to the senseless act that occurred in Las Vegas on Sunday night,” said Patrick Monroe, CEO of Rose Hills.
For years, the Rose Hills sign has been an icon as drivers traverse Whittier’s local streets and freeways. At night, the nearly 20-foot-tall illuminated letters have often been used by pilots as a visual reference on their way to Los Angeles International Airport.
“In a small way we want to pay tribute to those 59 individuals and let them know that the Rose Hills family is keeping them in our thoughts and prayers,” added Mr. Monroe.
