The Compassionate Friends Annual Worldwide Candle Lighting honors and remembers children who have died. This year’s event will be held on Sunday, December 11th at 7 p.m. local time. Please share this post with those you believe could benefit from the healing act of remembering a child who has died. I love selecting a special candle for my son for this special evening of reflection.

As always, my candle remembering my son, Eric, will be burning brightly, too.
