Individuals and families gathered at Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care’s annual Angels Among Us remembrance service in Santa Barbara to remember their loved ones Thursday, Dec. 10, 2015.

The service provided over 100 participants with a time of reflection and connection that included inspirational music, a candle lighting ceremony, tributes and refreshments.

At the service, attendees were invited to participate in the Gathering of Angels, a beautiful display of angels inscribed with words of dedication and remembrance.  

The Gathering of Angels, with over 400 angels, will be on display through Dec. 31, 2015, at VNHC’s Community Room in Santa Barbara.

Members of the community are welcome to contact Rebecca Benard at [email protected] to set a time to view its unique beauty and read the messages that have been lovingly written on the angels.

Angels Among Us is a special offering over the holidays to honor and remember those who live in our memories. 

For over a decade, Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care has provided families in our community a time of reflection and support through Angels Among Us.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
