Worldwide Candle Lighting Tonight at 7 PM

Today is/would be Amber Blackburn's birthday.  The daughter of some dear friends, Amber passed away earlier this year.  We were unable to attend her funeral, but we did make it back for the memorial service.

Barb and Jolly asked us to light a candle tonight at 7 PM in remembrance.  In addition to today being Amber's birthday it is also a special day to remember all children who have died.

Anticipation of a very special and memorable day grows as the 15th Worldwide Candle Lighting December 11, 2011 nears.  The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting unites family and friends around the globe in lighting candles for one hour to honor and remember children who have died at any age from any cause. As candles are lit at 7 p.m. local time, creating a virtual wave of light, hundreds of thousands of persons commemorate and honor the memory of children in a way that transcends all ethnic, cultural, religious, and political boundaries.
