Homosassa Springs, FL, September 12, 2022 – Yellow Heart Memorial will host a rededication ceremony on Monday, September 12, 2022 at 11 am. We will come together at Friends of Citrus and the Nature Coast Grief Services – 8471 W Periwinkle Ln, Homosassa Springs, FL
The rededication ceremony of Florida’s Yellow Heart Memorial is for remembering our loved ones lost to COVID. The Crystal River Mall closed last month, and we will rededicate the memorial in our new home. A binder will be displayed on the table at the memorial. Feel free to bring stories, articles, obituaries, etc. to share with the community. Yellow heart cutouts are on hand to add your loved ones to the memorial.
Volunteers of Yellow Heart Memorial Florida Chapter are organizing the event as they mourn their personal losses. “On April 29, 2020, I lost my extra special brother Bobby to COVID. He was intellectually disabled with a heart filled with love and generosity. People are still dying, and it is devastating. My mom was taken by the virus about a month ago on August 6th. Over 80,000 people in Florida and over 1 million in the US are gone. We must honor every one of their lives” says Debra McCoskey-Reisert.
Yellow Heart Memorial is a non-profit organization created and curated by COVID Survivor Advocate, Rosie Davis of Texas as a tribute to her mother and those who died due to COVID-19. Its mission is to have the memories of loved ones lost to COVID live forever. Since its first memorial in January 2021, the organization has expanded with chapters across the country. Each memorial also features silhouettes of COVID-19 victims in yellow hearts drawn by 16-year-old Faces of COVID Victims founder Hannah Ernst in honor of her grandfather.
