Chance to re­mem­ber much-loved lit­tle ones

Llanelli Star - - Letters -

BE­REAVED fam­i­lies from Car­marthen­shire are in­vited to a spe­cial ser­vice next week.

The an­nual Withy­bush Baby Ser­vice will be held at St Luke’s Chapel, in Withy­bush Hos­pi­tal, on Septem­ber 11 at 6.30pm.

The ser­vice will in­clude hymns, read­ings and poems, and lit­tle ones will be re­mem­bered with mem­ory cards, which will be given out to be placed on the al­tar.

Gill Llewellyn, be­reave­ment of­fi­cer at Withy­bush Hos­pi­tal, said: “Ac­knowl­edge­ment of the death of a baby, re­gard­less of when the loss oc­curred, is very im­por­tant. We hope that this will pro­vide par­ents and fam­ily mem­bers the sup­port and space they need to re­mem­ber the baby or child that they have lost, and ease some of the pain that they feel.

“The ser­vice will also pro­vide staff, who have pro­vided sup­port to fam­i­lies, with the op­por­tu­nity for peace and re­flec­tion.”

All are wel­come to at­tend the ser­vice and re­fresh­ments will be pro­vided after­wards.

If you are un­able to at­tend you can still have a mem­ory card placed on the al­tar by con­tact­ing Gill. [email protected] or 01437 772347 or Sarah. Hors­[email protected] or 01437 773931.
