KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — Bronson Healthcare hosted a virtual vigil Tuesday evening to remember and honor those who have been affected by COVID-19.
Healing Steps Forward Virtual Vigil included the lighting of three candles; One candle was lit to remember those who have died from COVID-19, the second was lit for those who are grieving and the third was lit for those who have taken care of others, Bronson Healthcare said in a release.
The community was also invited too “light a candle” and leave a message on the vigil’s website.
“This is really is a very inclusive event, it’s meant for everyone,” said Terry Morrow, the VP of development for Bronson Healthcare. “Every comment that’s left on there — some are sad, some are uplifting, some are a mix of both — but our staff are reading them every day and it’s making a difference and it’s demonstrating that the community is grieving with them, moving forward with them and taking a moment to pause as well.”
The vigil was a chance for the community and Bronson’s staff to come together and grieve while moving towards healing as COVID-19 numbers continue to improve.
