The holiday buzz is already upon us. So here’s my annual post regarding the The Compassionate Friends annual worldwide candle lighting that honors and remembers children who have died. This year’s event will be held on Sunday, December 12th at 7 p.m. local time. I will post reminders of this simple holiday tradition for the next few weeks. 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 just for this evening.

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