Time For Remembering FAQs

Time for Remembering

How many people attend?

About 500 people attend. You will see families, friends of families, hospital staff and volunteers.

Is there a limit to the number of family members who can attend?

No, you may bring as many family members as you like.

Can I go to the hospital and visit staff after the ceremony?

To protect families' privacy and provide a healing and restful environment for hospital patients, we ask that you do not visit the hospital on the day of the ceremony. Please let us know when you respond, or call us at any time before the ceremony, to let us know which staff members you wish to see that day. We will let the staff members know that you and your family have requested their attendance.

Can my family and I attend the event next year?

You can attend the ceremony as many years as you like. Visit to reqeust an invitation to next year's event.

What happens if it rains?

The event is held rain or shine. For light rain, we have umbrellas on hand and a tent that we use to shelter families as they plant their flowers. If there is a storm with thunder and lighting, we will postpone the planting for safety reasons.

There is no smoking allowed on the Vanderbilt campus or near the auditorium.
