Remembering the Unborn


By WSIL Manager

MT. VERNON -- There was a moving cemetery service in Mt. Vernon Saturday for children who never saw life outside the womb. It was the third ceremony for the unborn the Mt. Vernon Good Samaritan Regional Health Center has hosted. The goal is to help bring comfort to parents and families who have suffered the loss of a child.

"For those who trust in God and in the pain of sorrow, there is consolation. In the face of despair, there is hope. In the midst of death, there is life,"said Father John Iffert during his sermon

Director of Pastoral Care for St. Mary's Hospital Jeff Stewart says the loss of a child can be traumatic for families, but these services have been able to bring peace to many of them.
