Light a candle for our children

From page A4 | December 06, 2012 |

This Sunday, The Compassionate Friends will offer the 16th annual Worldwide Candle Lighting Service to remember all the children who have died. Since my son passed away in 2008, I have lit a candle every year at 7 p.m. local time and have participated with millions of others in the virtual circle of light that burns around the globe for one hour in each time zone on the second Sunday in December.

In past years. a local candle-lighting ceremony took place in Davis, sponsored by Yolo Compassionate Friends, the local chapter of TCF. Unfortunately, due to declining attendance and other issues, the Yolo chapter will not hold a local candle-lighting service this year. Bereaved parents, grandparents and siblings are welcome to attend a candle-lighting service at other area TCF chapters. The closest one is at the Sacramento Valley Chapter of The Compassionate Friends.

Here are the details: 6 p.m. Sunday at Christ Community Church, 5025 Manzanita Ave., Carmichael. A potluck dinner, dessert and coffee are planned. Framed photos no larger than 5-by-7 inches or a small remembrance will be accepted for a picture table. For more information, contact Pamela Amo at tcfsacvalley@gmail.com, 661-252-4374 or 661- 252-4654 or foreverangels@sbcglobal.net.

Thank you, Compassionate Friends.
