Celebration Of Life Winter Service

On Friday December 22. 2017, Signature Healthcare Waterford celebrated the lives of those dear residents that are no longer with us. The service was held in the third floor dining room with an open invitation to residents, families, and stakeholders. 

The service began with Volunteer Luis Gutierrez, reading of the story behind the song: “It is well with my soul.” The reading was followed by the singing of “It is well with my soul.” performed by our Activities Department.

Director of Spirituality, Jacob Miranda then gave a devotional from Psalm 23. Following the devotion, each resident’s name being celebrated was called with the ringing of a bell and a lit candle in their remembrance. Several family members in attendance came forward to share memories of their loved ones and thanked all stakeholders in Waterford for the love and care they provided. Each family member was given a fragrant white flower to take home with them.

The service was concluded with a social time around generous slices of red velvet cake for everyone present. 

Grace & Peace

Chaplain Jacob Miranda.
