  • Sunday - A Special Day of Remembering

    This Sunday is a special day to remember all children who have died. Even those who have passed away as adults are someone's child. We will have candles lit at our house for those special angels. I'm sure many of you will be joining the lighting as we keep their memories alive.

    2004 Worldwide Candle Lighting

    In Memory of All Children

    "The mission of The Compassionate Friends is to assist families toward the positive resolution of grief following the death of a child of any age and to provide information to help others be supportive."


    Sunday, December 12, is the 2004 "Worldwide Candle Lighting in remembrance of all children who have died. This candle lighting is held every year on the second Sunday in December, at 7:00 PM in every time zone. As candles burn down in one time zone, they are lighted in the next, creating a 24-hour wave of light that encircles the globe, ".....that their light may always shine" Let's all light a candle in remembrance of those precious ones no longer with us, and in support of those families who have suffered such a tragic loss.

      Re: Sunday - A Special Day of Remembering

      During this hour I am thinking of: my aunt who passed away many, many years ago of infant pneumonia, the niece or nephew of ours that was miscarried, the nephew of a good friend who fought a rare cancer and left to become an angel at 3 yrs old and for the many babies of my friends that were miscarried.
