A Celebration of Life

At the McClendon Center’s Day Program, it is always important for us to celebrate the lives of our community members. Remembering them is important, but it’s also important for our clients to know that should they pass on, they will be remembered.

Most of our clients will not have enough money for a funeral and do not have family members in their lives who will organize and pay for it. Lives lost and not remembered in any special way can be a normal occurrence for them. 

Earlier this month, we celebrated the lives of three clients, Linda Thorton, Brenda Williams, and Joseph Hewitt, and our front desk receptionist of many years, Mary Newman. The clients decided to do a “Second Line” Dance, a New Orleans tradition in their honor.

It truly was a celebration of life.
