FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (PRWEB) May 14, 2021
On Friday, May 14th and Saturday, May 15th, Pinelawn Memorial Park and Arboretum will host a candlelight remembrance vigil, a peaceful evening in honor of loved ones who have passed. Guests can peacefully reflect as loved one's names are read aloud amongst the serene beauty of Pinelawn's Louis Natalie Mall.
Pinelawn's Candlelight Remembrance Vigil will include the gentle sounds of live string music, the glow of string lights, and a slideshow of submitted photos of loved ones, creating a tranquil setting for the families in attendance. Additionally, before the reading of names, there will be a non-denominational sermon from Deacon Thomas Hennessy and Reverend Lamont S. Granby on Friday and Saturday, with the addition of Rabbi Arthur L. Schwartz on Saturday.
The vigils are Pinelawn's most needed and well- attended events. All four sessions are filled, with up to 150 registered guests at each session.
"Whenever we have a service here at Pinelawn, our hearts go out to the families as we understand the grieving process is difficult. This is why we are hopeful that our Candlelight Remembrance Vigils will offer a peaceful evening and provide the ideal setting for families to honor the memory of their loved ones," stated Justin Locke, President of Pinelawn Memorial Park and Arboretum
