Remembrance Tree for Children Lost

remembrance treeFrom Dawn Moriwaki and  France Tucker, two local women that have known unspeakable loss, and who created the Remembrance Tree in memory of their daughters.

For those people who have lost a child and are feeling added stress and grief during these fall and winter holidays, this has become a treasured event.

The 5th anniversary of the ribbon ceremony to remember children who have died will take place on Sunday, November 24th, at 2 pm in the park at the corner of Palmer Avenue and Weaver Street in the Town of Mamaroneck.

The Remembrance Tree became a reality when two families forged a friendship after the deaths of their children. The remembrance tree was born out of a desire to unite other families in the community who had lost children of all ages, due to any circumstances; for whom the holidays are especially difficult and for whom there is a need to know that their children are remembered.  In that spirit, there will be an annual event for these families at the Palmer-Weaver park. Loved ones are invited to  bring a white ribbon with the name of their child written on it so that it may be tied to a branch of the evergreen where the remembrance plaque sits. This will be a reminder during the winter holidays that their children’s light continues to shine.

The Remembrance Tree Ceremony for 2016 is taking place tomorrow, Sunday, November 20th, at 2pm, on the corner of Weaver Street & Palmer Avenue in Larchmont. This will be rain or shine, and we ask that if you’d like to honor a child (sibling or grandchild), or a young person in your neighborhood, school system or church congregation who has passed away, please bring a white ribbon with the name of that special child (no matter the age) and you’ll have the opportunity to tie the ribbon onto one of the branches of the ‘Cedrus Deodara’ evergreen. As we enter these winter holidays, this gives us the chance to remember precious children and to know that they live on forevermore.
