Now believed to be the largest mass candle lighting on the globe, the Worldwide Candle Lighting, a gift from TCF to the bereavement community, creates a virtual 24-hour wave of light as it moves from time zone to time zone. Hundreds of formal candle lighting events are held and thousands of informal candle lightings are conducted in homes as families gather in quiet remembrance of children who have died, but will never be forgotten.
The Worldwide Candle Lighting started in the United States in 1997 as a small Internet observance but has since swelled in numbers as word has spread throughout the world of the remembrance.
Please join us on Sunday as we remember Paul and all children who have died. We ask for prayers for those who have lost children of any age, for Paul\’s friends, and all of our family. While it has only been 2 years since Paul died, this is our 3rd Christmas season without him. We miss him with all of our hearts and think of him constantly.
Pass it on if you would like.
Thank you and God bless you.
