The Wesleyan Ringer of the First United Methodist Church in East Liverpool performed during the annual Tree of Remembrance Service at the Dawson Funeral Home in East Liverpool Sunday. The names of lost loved ones were read by Belinda and Jim Dunlap (pictured). Ornaments were made by friends and family members for each loved one and used to decorate the tree shown, which will be planted at Riverview Cemetery. Left, Judy Kidder helps those who attended the service at The Dawson Funeral Home retrieve their special ornaments so they can take them home. Kidder, who offered a reading during the service, will lead a special candlelight service at 7 p.m. Sunday for those parents who have lost a child.
