A special thanks to Michelle Hanrahan and all those who helped make the evening a success.  Assisting as needed were Kim Jones, Carrie Evans, Teresa Dille, Matt Hahn, Misti Ferkull, Sandy Ferris, Marcia Ochoa, Rick Kalk, Richard Stake, Dianne Correll, Kathy Chepela and Tammy Vogel.  Paul Vogel offered some thoughts and stories to remind us all of the reason for the season, while his brother Brant sang a song inspired by his grandfather and days fishing.  Matt and Sara Courtney and Caroline Moore shared a heavenly song and all enjoyed fellowship after the door prizes were awarded over delicious punch and an assortment of sweets.  And, for the first time, pictures of loved ones were projected on the wall as names and dates were read as loved ones placed glass angels on the tree.

Rendina’s ceremony was on Thursday afternoon organized by Taylor Wise, with Greg Schafer and many of the people mentioned above all helping out.

The First Annual Angel Tree Lighting Ceremony was held at Rendina Funeral Home on December 3, 2015.  It was a pleasant success as families served by Rendina gathered to remember their lost loved ones.  Not that long ago, Calumet Park Funeral Chapel instituted the event at their chapel which is now attended by over 200 people annually.  Thanks to all that made this first remembrance ceremony a success, especially Michelle Hanrahan, Taylor Wise, Teresa Dille, Carrie Evans and Marsha Ochoa.
