In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the spiritual care team at Methodist has made the difficult but necessary decision to continue to host the annual Remembrance of Life memorial service in a virtual format. All those who have experienced pregnancy or newborn loss are invited to participate in our online service, as well as honor your little loved one in a butterfly garden at one of our hospital locations.
