Snowflake Celebration 2018

In Loving Memory of Mrs. Pat Tomlinson

Pat Tomlinson Torch

Miss Pat as she was affectionately called by friends, staff and coworkers at Cooper Hospital was the spirit of the Season of Hope and Healing.  Her heartbreaking passing in the beginning of December is a huge loss to her family, friends and all of us at Cooper.  The Season of Hope and Healing was her special passion. She organized it every year from the selling of snowflakes, to arranging the program in the lobby, and the ending with the magical tree lighting in the DeFlorio Healing Garden.  Reading the traditional Snowflake poem this year has a deeper meaning to all of at Cooper because of Miss Pat.

Each Of Us A Snowflake
by Emily Warburton

We are each of us a snowflake
No two of us the same
Reflections of the endless loving
Source from which we came.

Unique in form and beauty
Crystalized at birth
Little flecks of heaven
Born to melt into the earth.

We are each of us a snowflake
Of infinite design
Transitory dancers
On the window panes of time.

Unique in form and beauty
No two of us the same
Reflections of the endless loving
Source from which we came.

We are each of us a snowflake
A falling star in flight
A traveler through the universe
In search of our own light.

Unique in form and beauty
No two of one design
Transitory dancers
On the window pane of time.
