Hugs From Home

Hugs from Home is a service we have implemented  that will give those not attending the chance to be able to share a token of love and support. Click the link below and leave a message of support that will be handwritten and attached to a white balloon. These balloons will fill our chapel as hugs for the families. They will be able to read your heartfelt messages and hopefully know that many others are there with them in spirit.
