'Place between heaven and earth:' Hospice Ministries in Ridgeland delivers flower ministry - Clarion Ledger
Methodist Conference of Mississippi established Whispering Pines.
A June 14, 1999 photo Clarion Ledger photo shows Bishop William Houck of the Catholic Diocese of Jackson, with the Rev. Jerry McBride of St. James Episcopal Church and the Fortenberry of the Mississippi Area of the United Methodist Conference by his side, sprinkling blessed water during the dedication of the Ridgeland facility.
“Hospice Ministries has developed a reputation for quality, compassionate care of people at the end of life,” said Fortenberry, who served on the board at Whispering Pines Hospice and chaired the Hospice Ministries Board for several years. “People who go to work there and stay for many years see it as a ministry. That makes all the difference in how they help people deal with impending death.”
In addition to care at its facility in Ridgeland, Hospice Ministries also offers in-home hospice care as well as hospice care for patients in nursing homes, assisted living homes and other residential care settings. The McLean Fletcher Center at 12 Northtown Drive in Jackson provides programs for grieving children and teens and also falls under the umbrella of Hospice Ministries.
The in-patient facility of Hospice Ministries in Ridgeland has room to care for 40 patients and that care extends to emotional support for their families. Care is focused on the patient’s priorities, needs and values, and services are designed to ease pain and alleviate symptoms.
“Thirty years ago, hospice was something new,” said Houston. “More people understand it but it’s still new to some people.”
Hospice Ministries accepts private insurance and Medicare and uses Medicare guidelines for admitting patients. “A patient has to have a life-limiting illness with a life expectancy of six months or less,” Britt said.
The in-patient facility in Ridgeland includes a chapel with windows designed by Andy Young of Pearl River Glass Studio in Jackson. The chapel was named in honor of Fortenberry after he completed his service on the board.
“The chapel represents the religious base of the facility as does the name,” Fortenberry said. “It’s a very pretty setting that can be used for memorial services.”
Community organizations have assisted with updates to the facility, Britt said.

On 81st Birthday Bishop Liston Page Sr. Blessed by Raindrops, Honored with Street Naming - TAPinto.net
Highway Church of Christ weren’t quite done heaping praise on their spiritual leader, Bishop Liston Page, Sr.
Indeed, the raindrops, several speakers said from the altar, were in fact a blessing, another sign of God’s love being bestowed on the man who, on the day that would bring the birth of his fourth grandchild, as well his 81st birthday, seemed to be thrice blessed on Sunday.
“This is a dream come true,” Page’s son, also Bishop Liston Page, said of the honor that put his father’s name on the street outside the church that he said has been a “beacon of light to those that are helpless.”Sign Up for E-News
Councilwoman-at-Large Dr. Lilisa Mimms, who along with Third Ward Councilman Bill McKoy sponsored the resolution declaring the street name change, said there was no reason to wait any longer to bestow the honor. “We have to give people their flowers when they can still smell them,” Mimms said. “Name streets after them while they can still drive on them.”
Calling Bishop Page an “icon” Mimms said that the honor is “deserved for all the work he’s done.”
“He has fed so many people, saved so many lives,” Mimms added, reflecting that as a young girl growing up right around the corner she benefited from a feeding program Page spearhe... Nov 15, 2018

All Saints' Day customs in New Orleans are still a must, despite changes in the city
I haven't been very pleased with the Catholic Church, I haven't been to Mass in a couple of months. Because I need more than two priests and the bishops in Chile excommunicated," Dawson-Walker says. "I need it clean. I need them to start sweeping them out. They've done a little too much harm to people, and I think someone needs to hold them to the fire."Despite those matters, Dawson-Walker honors her family and keeps New Orleans Catholic traditions alive. "Now you have all these tours telling you all these phantasmagorical things, romanticizing what happens on All Saints' and All Souls' Day. It's basic stuff. You go to Mass, you clean it up, you give them some fresh flowers," she says. Dawson-Walker recalls growing up going to Mass on All Saints' Day, then to St. Louis No. 2 the following day on All Souls' Day, when she and her family - and other New Orleanians - would scrub and whitewash the crypts with buckets full of water and special long-handled brushes. "I don't remember when my family stopped doing that, but I think age caught up with the elders, and some were ill."Talking with her daughter Julie, nephew Ricky and other family members from younger generations about death is often met with obstinacy. "I try to prepare my children and grandchildren. I say, ‘You know I gotta go to Jesus one day and I'm going to leave y'all and I want y'all to be ready for it.' Well, nobody wants to hear that right now," Dawson-Walker says. " 'Oh, you're young, and you do this. Oh, Granny, don't talk like that.' Yeah, but it comes," she says. "It is part of the circle of life. You come, you live and you go."Dawson-Walker knows visiting cemeteries can feel strange or scary, and she wonders if that is part of why some of the New Orleans Catholic traditions are fading."It's not an easy thing to visit a cemetery, because death is all around and you're just surrounded. But I believe it's a place of reverence. It's a place for resting your loved one's body, if that's what you choose to do. We all have different beliefs as to how we want to do things."Treating death as a transition and not an end is how Dawson-Walker and her family members choose to revere their decea...
