Tuesday, December 18 at 10:30 a.m., please join the Orlando community to recognize and remember the lives of persons who have died this year in Central Florida after having experienced homelessness. During the service, names of homeless persons who died in 2018 will be read aloud, and a candle will be lit to recognize and pay tribute to our neighbors who died on the streets or in emergency shelters. In many cases, this service is the only commemoration of their life and their passing.
The service will be from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. with a reception afterwards. All are welcome. Please dress casually and comfortably.

“Someone once said, that everyone dies twice: first, when you take your last breath, and second, when your name is spoken for the last time. It is important to speak the names and remember those who, although less fortunate than some, were part of our community and deserve to be acknowledged. ”
– Don Price, Sexton of Orlando’s Greenwood Cemetery
