Holiday Memorial Dove Tree



All of us at Family Hospice wish you and your loved ones a season of peace and love.

Please consider joining us in the long-standing tradition of remembering  loved ones with a dove ornament.  For your gift of $35 or more, we will place your loved one’s name on a dove to hang on the tree of your choice.  There are several locations from which to choose, including the Galleria of Mt. Lebanon (Nov. 10 - Jan. 4), Monroeville Mall (Nov. 11 - Dec. 30), The Block at Northway (Nov. 16 - Dec. 28), and the US Steel Tower downtown (Nov. 7 - Jan. 2). 



Also for $35, you can choose to receive a 5” x 7” WINDOW CLING

on which you can write your loved one’s name.







In addition, there is a 3½ “x4” SILVER METAL DOVE ORNAMENT from Wendell August Forge.  For $150 a name can be engraved and mailed to your home.  A limited number will be produced, so place your order soon!
