Light a Candle for the Children – For my Daughter

Light a Candle at 7PM for all children who have died.

Christmas can be extremely difficult time for families who are mourning the death of a child. Believe me, I know. 14 years ago I was mourning the death of my daughter Katie.

“The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting unites family and friends around the globe as they light candles for one hour to honor and remember children who have died at any age from any cause. ”

Tonight please light a candle in memory of my daughter Katie DesRochers and for all the children taken from this world too soon. You can also post a message to the compassionate friends remembrance book.

Tonight I hope that you’ll join me in lighting a candle for all the children that are no longer with us.
