Cherish the Child Walk

Every year on the second Sunday of September, Christy-Smith sponsors this walk to honor and and remember our children.  The walk begins at 1:00 p.m. at Christy-Smith Family Resource Center, 1819 Morningside Avenue, Sioux City, Iowa (rain or shine).  It finishes at Latham Park (approximately 10 blocks away) with a brief remembrance service, which includes special readings, music and a balloon send-off.  Participants will then walk back to the Resource Center for refreshments and fellowship.  There is no fee to attend, but pre-registration is required.  Don't miss this opportunity to remember and "cherish the child" that you loved.

Book of Memories™

Memorialization at its best, any family member or friend can take advantage of this free service by creating an account and a book to memorialize their loved one.

Pre-Arrangement

Dying is one of the few events in life that's certain to occur, yet one we rarely plan for. Should we spend more time preparing for a two week vacation than we do our last days on Earth?

Expressions of Sympathy

It can be difficult to find the right words, so we have hand-picked a collection of sympathy and remembrance gifts that will be cherished.
