The Compassionate Friends Memorial Service and Candle Lighting


Join us on Sunday, December 8, 2019, at 6:00pm for the 23rd Annual Worldwide Candle Lighting. This is a very special and moving event, which unites family and friends around the globe in lighting candles for one hour to honor the memories of the sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, and grandchildren who left too soon.

During the memorial, there will be time to share a special song, poem, or memory, plus memory tables to share picture(s) and mementos of your loved one(s). Light refreshments follow the memorial (please bring a favorite dish, snack, or dessert in memory of your loved one). Parents, grandparents, siblings, and other family members and friends are all welcome to participate. Our service is nondenominational and open to the public.

For more information visit the Compassionate Friends website.
