Candle ceremony honors children who have died
While joyful for most, the holiday season is often difficult for those who grieve any kind of loss of a loved one, but most especially of a child.
There is no magic to handling the holidays after the loss of a child, no matter the age at the time of loss, but there are people who understand. Seek strength and courage with those who love you, with those who know the pain that the holidays can bring, and in the memories of the child who is missing from your family circle.
Bereaved parents and family members in the DeKalb County area are invited to join the Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candlelight Service, DeKalb County Hospice Candle Lighting Committee, and thousands of bereaved parents around the world on the second Sunday in December to light candles in memory of all the children who have passed away.
