Bishop-Hastings ornaments honor lost loved ones

Funeral home gives angel tree decorations to families

(Dec. 8, 2017) For the sixth year, Bishop-Hastings Funeral Home in Selbyville is honoring loved ones who passed away during the year with a series of memorial Christmas ornaments.

The funeral home takes care of the operation entirely on its end and at no cost to its clients.

“Every year, we put up a Christmas tree and we hang an angel for everyone who has died in the past year on there, for families we have served,” Bryan Bishop said.

Reminder cards were sent to each family last week, Bishop said, letting them know the angel ornaments can be picked up on or after Saturday, Dec. 16.

“That way they can put them on their Christmas tree at home,” he said. “We do it all on our end – they only thing they have to do is just come and pick them up.”

Bishop said the funeral home will mail ornaments to families who do not live in the immediate area.

“The response has always been really good,” he said. “It’s very emotional on the day when families come to pick them up. When people come in and see the tree, it brings back memories, but it’s also very respectful for those people and shows we care about what we do.”

Angel ornaments can be picked up from the Bishop-Hastings Funeral Home on 19 Main Street in Selbyville, Delaware from 9 a.m. to noon on Dec. 16. They can also be picked up during the following week, Dec. 18-20.
