Light Of Life


Good Shepherd Homecare & Hospice’s Light of Life memorial gives individuals a unique opportunity to honor their loved ones during the holiday season.

Anyone interested in honoring the memory of a loved one can purchase an ornament in honor of that person. The memorial ornaments can be purchased for any family member or friend, they are not only for individuals care for by Good Shepherd Homecare & Hospice. Ornaments can be purchased by clicking below.

The ornament will then be placed with loving care onto the Light of Life trees, located at the Manhattan Town Center Mall, where they will shine throughout the holiday season.

The Light of Life memorial is a truly special tribute to the memory of our loved ones, and we would be honored to share this opportunity with you.

There is no better time than the holiday season to remember the ones we love.
