People at CHI Health St. Francis in Grand island are honoring their loved ones by putting ornaments on a tree in the hospital.

It is the 13th-annual Tree of Love vigil that the St. Francis Foundation puts together each year.

It is designed to help people cope with grief of losing a loved one during the holiday season.

CHI officials said this is a time when community members can support one another.

"There's so much more to healing then being in the hospital and caring for a wound or an illness," said Claire Aguilar, St. Francis Foundation Director. "Spiritual healing and emotional healing is all part of that holistic approach to making people to feel better."
