A New Day Hospice Yukon: Volunteering at Christmas

A New Day Hospice Yukon: Volunteering at Christmas

People can experience loss in many ways -- through the death of a loved one, a long-cherished pet, or even the end of a relationship. Hospice Yukon's Lights of Life is an annual event held every December to give people the opportunity to place a tag on a Christmas tree in honour and remembrance of someone who has died. This simple but powerful ritual has brought comfort to many people dealing with loss. Morris Lamrock relates his experience as a newly trained volunteer helping to bring the Lights of Life event into a Yukon prison, an environment where among the losses particular to each individual, all have experienced the loss of their freedom.
