In the warm embrace of summer’s fading light, we gather to celebrate the cherished memories of the seniors we have lost. Each passing season carries with it a profound sense of both beauty and sorrow, and this summer, as we bid farewell to our beloved friends, we are reminded of the wisdom, grace, and enduring love they bestowed upon us.
These remarkable individuals, with their silvered hair and sparkling eyes, have left an indelible mark on our lives. They were the storytellers, the bearers of traditions, and the keepers of family histories. Their laughter filled our homes, their guidance shaped our paths, and their unconditional love nurtured our souls.
We bid them farewell and will think of them always.
The Edward King House Senior Center Memorial Fund has been established to pay tribute to these remarkable individuals. Your generous donation will help us create a lasting memorial that will honor their contributions to our community and serve as a source of comfort and inspiration for generations to come.
