    Snowline: Remembrance of Lives Lost to the Coronavirus

    One Year Of Coronavirus

    Flags are flying at Half Staff all over the United States this week as our nation honors and grieves over 500,000 Americans whose lives were lost to COVID-19.

    The National Memorial Monday night was stunning in the sheer number of 500,000 lit candles, each candle representing a person in the US whose life was taken too soon. Many COVID-19 victims fought courageously for life, and many tragically died alone, deprived of the presence of loved ones due to the cruel nature of this viral infection. Snowline staff and volunteers remember them, and we also remember their loved ones, those who are left behind whose lives are irrevocably altered

    For every life lost to the Coronavirus, it is estimated that an average of nine people grieve this loss, have a void in their life because of this loss. Many of the bereaved have been denied an opportunity to say goodbye to their loved ones.

    Many grieve alone, unable to gather for a Celebration of Life and find comfort with family and friends. 

    Our mission at Snowline is to serve our community by supporting patients at the end of life and guiding loved ones through grief. Snowline lives our mission and is offering telephone support and online grief 

    support groups to the community. We are reaching out to everyone who is looking for some support.
