For more than a decade, The Homeless Remembrance Project–a collaborative community effort facilitated by the homeless women of WHEEL–has created places of hope, healing, and beauty to honor and remember homeless people who’ve died in King County.  The Project has two parts:  A beautiful “Tree of Life” sculpture and gathering place at Victor Steinbrueck Park (north of Pike Place Market), and “Leaves of Remembrance,” embedded in sidewalks throughout the City.

ALL ARE INVITED TO CELEBRATE the July 8th re-blessing, dedication and affixing of six “Leaves of Remembrance” in front of Gethsemane Lutheran Church/Mary’s Place, during the Mary’s Place Saturday Service.

 We’re remembering these beloved community members:

PHYLLIS DETIENNE     1949—2014
SUSI HENDERSON     1943–2014
SALLY CORBETT  1952—2012
KIM WINTERS  1960—2012
 MAI HUYNH  1956—2010
GAIL NORA BRACKEEN  1959—2013

 The event starts as a Blessing and Dedication toward the end of the 11 AM Service (circa 11:40 AM), and then there’ll be a chance to share stories and memories over the Mary’s Place Saturday lunch. Please join us!
