Re: Honoring Family Members
In Response To: Re: Honoring Family Members ()
We include a 'memorial' page in the reunion program book with the name, date of birth, date of death and the city and state of each family member who died since the last reunion. This year we included photos with the lineage listed to the earliest known ancestor.
During the worship service or the banquet, we have a memorial service with a scripture, prayer, song, and the memorial chair usually reads a poem. Then the chair reads each name, as an immediate family member of the deceased lights a candle.
