  • Harvey Pachter Family Tree: Purchase a leaf or stone today in honor or memory of your loved one. In recognition of your gift, UHR will engrave your leaf or stone with a message that is meaningful to you. Your message will remain a part of the tree in perpetuity. The Hospice family tree was named in memory of Harvey A. Pachter. Harvey was an active Hospice volunteer for many years and turned to Hospice for assistance when he himself faced a terminal illness. Harvey’s family, who were grateful for the care UHR provided, made a significant gift to Hospice to permanently name the tree in Harvey’s memory. The Hospice Family Tree stands as a lasting tribute to all those served by hospice – past, present and future. Click here to download the brochure for more details.
