A Mercy Hospital program is helping kids cope with the loss of a loved one. It's called "Mercy Lost and Found." And it's helping make the holidays a little brighter for people in Springfield." "Every year we have our children make angel ornaments in memory of the person who has died," says Karen Scott, Executive Director of 'Mercy Lost and Found. "Holidays are extremely difficult for families who have lost a loved one and part of the grieving process is learning how to incorporate the memory of that person into the holiday."
Every Sunday, families go to grief counseling at 'lost and found' in Springfield. They each hang an angel in their family member's name.The ornaments may not seem flashy and they didn't cost a dime. But for families like these, they are priceless.
