Mercy Hospice Plans Virtual Remembrance Service

October 11, 2021

Families who lost loved ones over the past two years are invited to attend Mercy Hospice Fort Smith’s virtual remembrance service Sunday, Oct. 24.

The 3 p.m. service will be available for live or recorded viewing via Zoom. A link to the service can be accessed at

Last year’s remembrance service was canceled due to COVID-19, so this year’s service will honor families who experienced a loss anytime over the past two years. Mercy welcomes anyone who would like to participate.

Rebekah Hassler, bereavement coordinator at Mercy Hospice Fort Smith, said the service is a way for Mercy Hospice to provide comfort to those families.

“Though we are disappointed we won’t be able to hold the remembrance service in person (due to COVID safety precautions), we sincerely hope that it will still offer an opportunity for grieving families to find some comfort in participating, knowing they aren’t alone in their grief,” Hassler said. “Mercy Hospice and bereavement staff and volunteers will be participating in the service, honoring the lives of their loved ones lost, cherishing their memories and offering consolation to those who loved them.”
