On July 13, 2018, we dedicated our third Comfort Care Room in tribute to Anna Regier Harder, Anna Bergen Dyck and Anna Dyck. Peter and Revita Dyck donated the room to honour their mothers’ and sister’s memory. Teir hope and prayer is that this room provides dignity to people in their final hours and provides families with the privacy and comfort to be with their loved ones.

“Uphold this room with love; Enfold this room with care and compassion and dignity; And bless this room with peace for evermore.”

their lives will live on forever in the hearts and souls they have touched. In remembrance of the Annas' we dedicated this room to the glory of God and for the comfort and dignity of others. Dedicated on this 13th day of July 2018 by Peter and Revita Dyck.
