A memorial garden will soon be growing next to the James Avery Center for Grief Support and Recovery, adjacent to the Community Home Health & Hospice facility in Longview.
The garden, which will occupy about 4,000 square feet in what was once a playground, will be named in honor of the late Kenneth Henderson and is being built with part of a $242,356 bequest from Henderson’s estate.
Greg Pang, chief executive officer for Hospice, said the garden “is a natural extension of our grief support center. People can come in, sit in this area and remember a loved one. … We’re happy to provide this place where they can heal and move on.”
