We are all just walking each other home. - Ram Dass

As the adjustments to life without a loved one continue, the anticipation and excitement for the holiday season and special times with family and friends may not be the same as years past. For those who have recently experienced a loss, the holidays may instead bring overwhelming sadness.

When we hear that someone else is grieving, it’s natural to assume that the relationship was a healthy one, and grief is that classic formula of “love with no place to go.” But the hard truth is that not all relationships are healthy, and the end that comes with death does not necessarily fix what was broken.

The Aroostook House of Comfort hosted its annual Remembrance Way dedication ceremony on August 26th. Remembrance Way Memorial Garden & Pathway is paved with personalized etched stones in honor of loved ones and surrounded by beautiful gardens.
