GRAND FORKS, ND (WDAZ-TV) -- Remembering those who won't be with us this holiday season.

Altru held their annual Candlelight Memorial Service for those who have lost babies during pregnancy and early infancy.

Family members made ornaments and then hung them on the tree as each baby's name was read aloud.

There was also a candlelight vigil in the Wings of Hope Memorial Garden.

Faith Swenson, "It's hard for me to talk about it and it's been two and a half years but, there's hope, and we can not forget but we can continue with life while remembering those we love.”

Altru provides bereavement services and helps find resources for parents who've lost children year round.
