The annual Windows to Heaven celebration of life, a memorial program that honors children who have died, will be held at 10 am on Saturday, February 16, in Lumpkin Family Center for Health Education at Sarah Bush Lincoln. This service is for those families who have suffered the loss of a child. Inspired by a Swedish children’s song, Windows to Heaven is a series of beautifully handcrafted windows from which an artist’s rendition of the brilliant night sky filled with stars can be seen. It’s permanent home is in the chapel at Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center. Silver stars engraved with the child’s name will hang in the clear sky among other stars. Stars can be purchased for $20 each by parents, friends, or relatives of children who have died.
