View Full Version : Remembering our loved ones with a Candle ceremony

11-18-2006, 09:22 PM
Would anyone want to take part in this if we started this here on the DIS. When my husband passed away the group that I belonged to did this at Christmas. We don't have to do it that day but pick a day and then have everyone light their candle at the same time all over the world.

We all prayed for each others loved ones that has passed and for us left behind.

If you want to participate we will need to pick a day and time to light the candle. Then everyone can start posting the names of those people we want to remember. It doesn't matter if you are dealing with health issues currently, or you are dealing with the death of a loved one.

We can all join together as part of a large concerned group of friends.

What do you think?

Great idea. I lost my first husband 13 years ago this coming April. We were married only one year, but not a day goes by without me thinking of him.

This is a tough time of year for me - I miss him so, so much!

Thanks, Marsha and safetymom.

Yes, it's been very, very hard. Also, I've been sick and haven't worked for 5 months now.

I'm dreading Thanksgiving, and don't even want to think about Christmas! Plus, her birthday is 2 days after Christmas. :sad1:

I'll keep an eye on this thread.

And Marsha, I was just reading about your DH's troubles. I hope and pray he (and you and the girls) will be all right!

Count me in too. I lost my mother when I was 19 and my grandmother just a few years ago but I have always been searching for a way to honor them and this would mean so much to me to be a part of this. Thank you for coming up with this wonderful tribute.

Count me in, I lost my dad one month before my wedding in 1995, and my MIL the year after on the day I found out I was expecting our 1st DD.
