Despite the Coronavirus and social distancing, organizations whose missions include honoring the memory and meeting the unique needs of our veteran and first responder populations realized they still needed to find a way to honor the fallen this Memorial Day week. In response, appearances suitable for sharing on social and traditional media were held to raise awareness of the needs of these heroes.
This Memorial Day, we may not have the opportunity to gather for traditional events, but you can still honor and remember our heroes online and on social media. View our slideshow below for everywhere we assembled to Honor the Fallen this Memorial Day Week 2020, and click back to our Facebook page and share in the comments a brief story on who you are carrying this Memorial Day weekend.
Arkansas Hospice, Carry the Load, and Sheep Dog Impact Assistance united across the state to honor our veteran and first responder populations.

Your entire team brought into these tender and delicate moments compassion, kindness, gentleness, thoughtfulness, and quick responsiveness.
I have nothing but the best things to say about Arkansas Hospice. They were so good to my Dad before he passed away. The love and care, compassion they showed to my dad was priceless. The nurses and CNA’s that took care of my Dad are the best and always be the best.
The skilled and professional care and attention your team gave our mother made it possible for Mom to be granted her wish to die comfortably at home.
We are just starting our dad’s final journey and Arkansas Hospice has been a blessing. They’ve taught us so much already and provide as much support and comfort to the family as they do my dad. I’m grateful they’ll be walking this final path with us.
I love Arkansas Hospice. Every single employee has a heart of gold and takes the best care of their patients.
I would not hesitate at all to recommend this provider for anyone who is considering hospice care for themselves or for a loved one.
Arkansas Hospice took care of my Mom before she passed. It was my first experience with any hospice and I was amazed. They took such great care of her. They treated her with dignity and respect until the end.
So many thanks for the way your staff treated my very dear friend, Jeff, as he raced toward the finish line. Words can’t express my gratitude for helping us to care for him and keep him comfortable. Top-notch professionalism and immediate responses to requests for assistance.
