Give The Gift of Being Remembered this Holiday Season
"What do I have to do to get my name on one of those bricks out back?" he asked.
"You've already done it - you're here."
"Oh, I thought only special people got one of those."
Morning Light's Award-Winning Abbie Hunt Bryce Home in Indianapolis believes everyone deserves care and dignity at the end of life regardless of income or background.
That's why we offer free hospice housing to the terminally-ill with nowhere else to go and no one else to care for them in life's final days. But we couldn't do it without our generous and caring community - supporters like you!
When our resident Richard, pictured below, learned that he would be remembered at Morning Light's Annual Memorial Garden Ceremony and Brick Dedication, a tear fell down his cheek.
Over the last 17 years, final birthdays, holidays and meals have been shared within the Abbie Hunt Bryce Home. The Home is a beautiful 12-bedroom home with three large kitchens, dining rooms and gathering areas throughout. Each patient room opens to a spacious, fenced-in back garden for residents to enjoy fresh air and nature.
The Home has served over 700 terminally-ill residents.
Every person who stays with us receives their own room, three home-cooked meals a day, and most importantly, a hand to hold in life's final moments.
For many of our residents, they just want to know that they will be remembered.
Every hospice resident who stays at our Home has their name inscribed on a brick to be placed in the Memorial Garden - a testimony to each individual's life and legacy.
As Richard spent his final months at the Abbie Hunt Bryce Home, he kept a journal by his bedside. In it read, "If you want to honor me when I'm gone... honor me by brightening someone's day."
This Giving Tuesday, start your holiday season by brightening someone's day. Your generosity supports quality of life, dignity, impact - and most of all, the promise of never being forgotten.
