PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) -

Family and friends of former Singing River Hospice of Lights patients honored their loved ones with a planting project. Hospice of Light planted a tree remembering patients who died during the last year.

The tree planting is a tradition that's part of National Hospice Month, which is recognized every November.

“This tree planting is about the families who have lost a loved one and their legacy. Planting a live oak tree allows us to provide a living remembrance and is just one of the many ways we want to honor and remember their loved ones for years to come,” said Crystal Davis, practice administrator for Singing River Hospice of Light.

The program opened for patients in 1994. It provides in-home comfort, care and compassion for those who are terminally ill.

It was the first program to serve all of Jackson County, as well as parts of Harrison and George counties. The program offers services to the six coastal counties.

    WLOX Editorials: Tell your state legislators to, 'do the right thing'

    The Mississippi State Legislature is back in session and as usual a fight is brewing over money. Still unresolved is what to do with  $750 million coming from BP over 17 years because of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil disaster. To the people here on the coast, there is no question that all of the money should be spent on projects in South Mississippi. But so far, the powers in Jackson and the rest of the state won't agree to that.
