Our loved ones are never truly gone, they live on as we celebrate their lives with our thoughts, our dedications and our stories...

I am so excited about the Forget Me Not Appeal, for me this is a great way of remembering my mom who passed away 4 years ago.

My mom Ann wasn’t under BSMH or even knew anything about them, but my mom loved spring and flowers so this is a perfect tribute and one I can have and enjoy at home.
