MOTHER’S DAY + FATHER’S DAY MEMORIAL 2019-04-30T23:09:51+00:00


Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are special days when you should be pampered by your spouse and children….where you get to take the day off, sleep in, enjoy the homemade gifts from your kids, maybe get breakfast in bed or a dinner out.

Instead of time to yourself, it is now a day that you need to take on the extra roles of organizing, coordinating and supporting your children who still want to honour you and their deceased parent.  They are another day when you have to continue your role as both Mom and Dad.   They are days that remind you of what you and your children have lost.

Every May, The Hummingbird Centre for Hope hosts its Annual Mother’s Day & Father’s Day Memorial Event.  In 2017, we renamed this event to LEGACY FAMILY DAY.

We invite families to come together in a safe, accepting and supportive environment and to be with others who understand what each of us is trying to cope with – the reality of being a widow or widower and a solo parent.

Each year we welcome families to join us in May where we will creatively express our grief together as a family.
