BRISTOL, Conn— The Hospice of Bristol Hospital hosted its annual Lights of Love appreciation breakfast on Feb. 28 at Nuchie’s in Forestville. Lights of Love supports the Hospice of Bristol Hospital.

The generosity of those who have donated to Lights of Love has provided patients and families with meals, financial assistance, massage therapy, social work and bereavement support. Two “First Lights” were given at the breakfast including one in memory of Joyce DiVenere, and a second in honor of Leslie Kish, MD, hospice volunteer and former chief of pathology and board member at Bristol Hospital.
