Representatives from Agapé Hospice were on the Presbyterian College campus Nov. 18 as a part of their statewide event, “Life Blooms Eternally.”
Cindy James, a 1984 PC graduate and director of growth and development at Agapé Hospice explained that the event, which consists of displaying a multitude of umbrellas, is a service for all the lives that have been touched by hospice or could benefit from hospice services.
“That’s why it’s called, ‘Life Blooms Eternally,’ because life is eternal, and it keeps going on,” James said.
James, who has been with Agapé Hospice for ten years added that people can come and view the umbrellas. They also have the option to purchase an umbrella in honor or in memory of someone.
“Some of the umbrellas have names on them,” James said. “That is so the families can walk through them and see the names of those touched by hospice.”
The event continued at Falls Park in Greenville, S.C. on Saturday, Nov. 19. Agape Hospice provides comprehensive end-of-life care to individuals and their families in a compassionate, faith-based, and dignified environment.
