“The Pathways Evening of Remembrance memorial event allowed me to see that we humans are walking down the same path in life. Although often hidden under the surface in everyday life, many of us are experiencing loss,” said Kathleen Craig, past Evening of Remembrance attendee. “By attending the Evening of Remembrance, I was able to see beyond myself, honor my mother’s memory and provide me with a healing perspective on my grief.”
