MEMORIAL WALL


Langley Hospice Society is pleased to present the Celebrate a Life memorial wall, a place where those we love are remembered.

This section is made up of writings from people who have experienced the loss through death of someone they love. In their grief journey, it has helped them to share the story of their loss. Some of the pages end with a way for you to connect directly with them.

Hey everyone, Ria here👋🏽 Because watching movies is so much better with a treat in hand, I’d like to share one of my favourite recipes for Halloween Popcorn🍿

Ingredients:
- [ ] 10c. Popped popcorn
- [ ] .5c. peanut butter (could substitute with WOW Butter for allergies)
- [ ] 3 Tbsp. Butter or margarine
- [ ] 3c. Mini marshmallows
- [ ] 1c. Chocolate of choice (smarties, Reece’s Pieces, Candy Corn ect. )

Directions:
1. Pop popcorn or use pre-popped popcorn. I recommend the Annie’s brand (it’s vegan and gluten free). Place popcorn into a large bowl.
2. In a medium saucepan, melt butter or margarine over medium high heat. Stir in marshmallows and when almost melted, stir in peanut butter. Be sure to stir the mixture constantly so that it doesn’t burn. Once fully melted, pour it over the popcorn.
3. Mix together and add in your favourite chocolates! I always add in Reece’s Pieces but for those who have a nut allergy, any other kind of chocolate could be substituted. I find that once the mixture cools, it’s easier to mix by hand.
4. Enjoy! Place any leftovers in an air tight container or plastic bag)

Hey everyone, Ria here👋🏽 For today’s #halloweenweek post I am sharing FOUR Halloween movie recommendations! *Please note the recommended minimum age for each movie*

🎃Room on the Broom (Ages 3+)
“This short film, an adaptation of the book by Julia Donaldson, stars a witch, but she's by no means scary: She's quick with a smile and a laugh, and kind to the animals who all ask her for a ride.”
1. What are some lessons we can learn from this story?
2. How do the characters help the witch? Who helps you when you need it?
3. Do you ever have bad dreams with scary characters like the dragon in them?
4. If you were a witch, what would you do with your magic powers?
5. If you had just one wish, what would you wish for?

🎃Hotel Transylvania (Ages 7+)
“Drama and hilarity ensues when a human discovers Dracula's faraway resort for monsters and other mythical creatures. The movie is from the POV of the monsters, so they come across as the good guys.”
1. Which monster do you think is the spookiest? Why?
2. Why did Dracula build the hotel? Do you have a special place where you feel safe?
3. What are the monsters afraid of? What are you afraid of?
4. Dracula says “as a father you do everything to keep your family safe even if you have to break their trust.” Do you agree?
5. What does “zing” mean?

🎃Hocus Pocus (Ages 10+)
“A curious youngster moves to Salem, where he struggles to fit in before awakening a trio of diabolical witches that were executed in the 17th century.”
1. Do you believe in magical creatures like witches and wizards?
2. If you could perform a spell to re-awaken the dead, would you? Why or why not?
3. Max tricks the witches to save Dani. Is there anyone in your life you can count on?
4. What do you know about the real events of the Salem Witch Trials?
5. Which character did you like most? Why?

🎃The Others (Ages 13+)
“Grace is a devoutly religious wife with two ailing kids. She moves with her family to a mansion on the coast of England while she awaits her husband's return from World War II, even though he has been declared missing.When Anne begins to see ghosts, Grace just thinks it's her new, eccentric, servants. But as Anne's visions grow more chilling, Grace is forced to believe something supernatural is happening in her own home.”
1. Do you believe in ghosts? Do you think that people who have died can communicate with us?
2. If you could see your special person again, would you want to?
3. Do you think this movie approaches death in a realistic way? Why or why not?
4. Does your family have any religious or spiritual beliefs about death or an after life?
5. How did you feel about the ending? Were you surprised?
