Program gives roses to honor fallen dads on Father's Day

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - For many, Father's Day as a time to give their father a hug or tell them how much they love them.

For others, that wasn't possible.

That's why Forrest Hill Community Outreached hosted a "Father's Day Rose Ceremony Remembrance" to honor those who lost their dads or any men they want to remember on Father's Day.

The program lasted an hour to help support those dealing with the loss.

"Even though they're no longer with us, their memories stay with us in our hearts, so this is an opportunity to bring inspiration and hope to those who are going through the next steps in the healing journey," Community outreach coordinator Lolita Poplar said.

Each participant received a long stem rose to honor their loved one.
