BC Bereavement Day: May 24, 2020

Bereavement Day is Sunday, May 24th  

The BC Bereavement Helpline and the Province of British Columbia have declared the 4th Sunday in May as BC Bereavement Day. This is a day held especially in memory of loved ones we have lost. 

In these uncertain times, we also want to acknowledge the losses we have felt due to the global pandemic. We mourn the loss of our sense of safety, our job, connection with our families, our routine, and so much more. 

This year we recorded our Bereavement Day ceremony at the BC farm where the doves are housed - provided by Wedding Wings. We hope you enjoy our tribute to your loved ones.   

Also, if you live or are near downtown Vancouver on Saturday, May 23rd - the Telus Science World will be lit up in blue in honour of Bereavement Day! Check it out! 

Thank you to our partner Kearney Funeral Services for their support of this event.
