My road to Hospice SLO County unknowingly began in late 2009 when my mom, Vicky Taylor, died of cancer just five weeks after I gave birth to my first child. We had hospice support for about a month and had a beautiful experience. I say “we” because the support was not just for my mom, but also for our entire family. After her passing, I found that being a new mom left me with little time or energy to process her death or grieve.

Often, images of winter holidays seen on television, in movies, and in advertising show happy people celebrating their traditions with their loved ones. But what if a loved one has died? Incorporating loved ones who are no longer living into holiday traditions was the basis for Hospice SLO County's first Light Up A Life remembrance ceremony.
