Time of Remembrance Video
Again this year, our annual Time of Remembrance comes in the form of a video, rather than an event, to remember and honor the lives of individuals in our hospice program and community who have died over the past year. Members of our hospice team and community have worked together to record readings, thoughts, art and music to bring comfort and honor the memories of those we love and are missing.

“Caring, capable, compassionate...these are the words that describe the work of the hospice team. What a blessing for our patients and families to have the members of this team...the nurses, social workers, therapists, home care aides, spiritual counselors and volunteers...travelling along with them on an end-of-life journey that, in fact, extends beyond death to a bereavement process to help loved ones in their ongoing experience of grieving. It has been a great privilege for me to have been a part of this team for so many years.”
Jack Kirk, MD
“Music therapy allows me to meet our patients exactly where they are with the music they most enjoy. Even at end-of-life, there is a wellness that can be reached and celebrated in each of us, and I am honored to witness this every day in the work I do as part of the hospice team.”
Grace Rapetti, MT-BC
“It’s a true privilege to be a part of the hospice team. I feel it’s a very intimate moment, with not just the client, but also the family. Each family that I have interacted with has touched my heart in some way. They say we bring light to them; they also bring light to me in so many ways.”
Michelle Nichols, LNA, HHA
Steve and Loa Winter moved to New Hampshire from California in the late 1970’s and were instrumental in the introduction of hospice care to Lake Sunapee VNA and the region. We invite you to enjoy their reflections as they share this history about our hospice program.
