At one point during the service, the deceased are mentioned by name. After three names have been called, a bell chimes three times in honor of their memory. This tribute is a very moving experience. Being at this service certainly reminded me of my mom who was buried on All Souls Day just two years ago.
I want to express my appreciation to all of the clergy and lay ministers who care for the sick, the hospitalized, the homebound, those on hospice, and all who are hurting. Your ministry of care and compassion is a tremendous blessing to God's people.
