"Ribbons of Memories" Weaving
Candle Lighting for Hope and Remembrance

September 21 through October, 2013

United in grief and loss, individuals gathered at the UM Cancer Center to remember loved ones that have died. The cloth ribbons in this weaving were the writing surface for messages, memories, and images. Individuals then wove their ribbons onto the metal grid, allowing for a release of grief energy. The completed weaving contains the sum of emotions from the gathering. It created both a bond between the community of individuals grieving the loss of loved ones and a beautiful art memorial.
