    There is nothing more difficult for human minds to process than the loss of a loved one. For many reasons, the holidays make it painfully obvious that someone is missing from the annual family gathering. This coming Sunday, December 8th @ 4p.m. you’re invited to join our Amedisys Hospice of Walterboro Staff, as I lead out our Annual Memorial Service. The event will be held @ the fellowship of hall of Grace Advent Church, 398 Mt. Carmel Rd, Walterboro, SC. We’ve designed this to encourage families throughout our community that have suffered recent loss of a loved one. I promise you will leave encouraged.
