Mosman, a hospice nurse, and her family were among the people who honored loved ones with a personalized ornament.

It’s not unusual to see an evergreen decked with shiny balls of red, blue, gold, silver and other colors during the holiday season. While such decorations may have special meanings for people, the ornaments hanging from the boughs of the tree at the Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association in Craig mean a whole lot. The VNA’s fifth annual Celebration of Life Tree event offered residents an opportunity to slow down from the fast-paced holiday fervor and take some time to remember those that they won’t be seeing in person at Christmas.
