With familiar hymns, consoling words and peaceful prayers, the State Anatomy Board thanked the families of its many donors during the annual memorial service yesterday at Springfield Hospital Center in Sykesville. As the warm summer sun streamed through towering oak trees, a crowd of more than 100 gathered before a stark gray monument dedicated to "those who gave unselfishly of themselves to advance medical education and research." Many placed simple bouquets of daisies or a single red rose on the stone that marks the grave of the thousands who have willed their bodies to science in the past three decades.

A miniature teddy bear nestled among elaborate floral displays and handmade garden bouquets adorning a granite monument at Springfield Hospital Center in Sykesville yesterday. The tributes and the stone dedicated to "those who gave unselfishly of themselves to advance medical education and research" served as the backdrop for the annual State Anatomy Board memorial service. Among the nearly 800 donors whose bodies were given to science last year were an athlete, a prisoner, a grandmother and an infant who lived less than a day. All of them helped medical students, surgeons and paramedics reach a better understanding of human anatomy.
