Staff Report

A Commemorative Brick Dedication Ceremony was held on Saturday, May 21 to celebrate the expansion of the “Pathway of Memories” at the Delaware Hospice Center in Milford. Two hundred guests attended the event to honor and remember family, friends, Delaware Hospice founding members and volunteers.

Betty Daudt honored her late husband with a commemorative brick and attended the event. She said, “This was a very nice ceremony and it was a wonderful crowd of people. I appreciated the opportunity to visit the Center, as I had no idea they had built such a large complex. It’s good to know that patients can be cared for in beautiful surroundings such as this.”

Betty, who knew her husband since childhood, was pleased to participate in the “Pathway of Memories.” She said, “I wanted to do something meaningful, and I’m glad that I did.”

One guest said, “My husband and I thank hospice for taking care of our parents in their last days. Everyone was great. We couldn’t ask for anything better, or more peaceful and loving than what they provided here.”

Manny Arencibia, Vice President of Development for Delaware Hospice, gratefully acknowledged the participation of so many in creating tributes to their loved ones. “We thank each of you for being here and for becoming part of our ‘Pathway of Memories.’ Your support will make a lasting impact on the lives of our patients and families, even as you create a lasting memorial to your loved one.”
