Since 2010, hundreds of families have attended the Annual Seeds of Hope Remembrance Program sponsored by Baue Funeral Homes, Crematory and Cemetery in St. Charles, Missouri.
This year, families will have an opportunity to participate in the planting of wildflower seeds in memory of their loved one. This tribute is designed to leave a colorful and lasting memorial in a wildflower garden area at our cemetery for families to contribute to for years to come.
The Seeds of Hope event, beginning at 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 23, is being held at the Baue Funeral and Memorial Center (3950 West Clay Street in St. Charles), is open to the public and is attended by over 250 people each year.
Families will receive a biodegradable card to write a memory on that has wildflowers embedded in them. During the ceremony, families can honor their loved ones by writing their memories on this card and placing their card into a memorial planter.
The contents of the planter will be cared for and transplanted to the Seeds of Hope Garden at St. Charles Memorial Gardens.
During the program, additional tributes will take place including a reading of the deceased names, a touching poem, special music, and a program on grief and loss given by Baue’s Director of Grief Services, Kelly Karavousanos, LPC, CT.
“It is a moving and sacred time for families to participate in an event together in remembering a loved one,” States Kelly Karavousanos “Some people have come for years to participate and it is always a healing experience for them.”
