We held a beautiful Remembrance Ceremony in Vita House Family Centre this lunchtime. We'd like to sincerely thank Darragh and Gerard who covered the event for Roscommon Herald, volunteers Monica, Kristina and Dara, supporters Joe and Caroline who provided us with heartfelt music and readings, the staff at Vita House, and most importantly those who remembered their lost loved ones with a ribbon and light on the tree. We hope to make this an annual event, and would welcome any thoughts or input that our supporters have to offer. You can get in touch for a chat, or to receive support around a bereavement at any time by calling 090 6625898.

We're still going ahead with tomorrow's Candle Lighting Ceremony! Due to the treacherous weather we've been experiencing over the weekend, we understand that some people would prefer not to travel, but we would like to assure those who can, that we do intend to stick to our planned ceremony, but we will move it indoors. All the plans are in place, we've moved everything inside, and we look forward to seeing you all to remember your loved ones. If you would like any more information, please call 0906625898.

Many thanks to all at RosFM 94.6 for chatting to our Suicide Bereavement Liaison Officer Tiffany yesterday. Listen here for a few words of advice on coping with loss over the Christmas period.

If you have been bereaved by suicide, we invite you to join us for a candle lighting ceremony at our remembrance tree in the gardens of Vita House Family Centre, Abbey Street, Roscommon. Each light will represent a gift in memory of a loved one lost to suicide. The ceremony will be followed by light refreshments in Vita House.
