A huge thank you to everyone who made Light Up a Life 2023 such a meaningful event. Over 40 people gathered at Johnson Heritage post to remember loved ones with gratitude and hope. We are so very thankful for:

  • All those who attended the ceremony.
  • All who made a Light Up a Life donation. Each $5 gift given in memory of a loved one added a light to the memory tree outside of Johnson Heritage Post, and helps support Care Partner’s services in Cook County.
  • Johnson Heritage Post for kindly providing outdoor space for the Memory Tree and indoor space for the ceremony.
  • Pastor Tom Murray from Lutsen Lutheran Church for sharing a lovely reflection and blessing.
  • Java Moose for the delicious, warm coffee.
  • Fred Anderson for sharing his beautiful guitar music.
  • Care Partners Board and staff for their assistance before, during, and after the ceremony. Special thanks to the Board for providing delicious goodies!
