The ceremony was scheduled to take place in the FMC Healing Garden but was relocated inside due to the hot weather.
During the service, a tribute was given to Jim O’Connell and to Mike Griffith. Griffith was also unveiled on the Friends of FMC donor wall.
Local pianist, Solenn Jacobsen, performed two beautiful musical selections. Pastor Joel Noel of the Emmanuel Evangelical Free Church in Plevna was the guest speaker. He spoke on memories of loved ones in relation to Hebrews 11 in the Bible.
Forty-one luminaries were lit in remembrance of loved ones followed by a memorial of photos.
The service provided a way for people to come together and share the emotions commonly experienced when loved ones have passed on.
Refreshments were served by the Knights of Columbus following the service.
