Worldwide Candle Lighting, Compassionate Friends

Join us to light a candle for a child (of any age) that has passed, and at 7pm candles will be burning all over the world in memory of your son or daughter.

Before the ceremony, there will be an opportunity to hang a free memorial ornament made of plantable seed paper and in the spring the ornaments will be planted in a designated garden to bring comfort to everyone who walks this path behind us. At the ceremony and throughout the holiday season, there is also the opportunity to deposit a private note or letter to your lost loved one in Darst Funeral Home’s secure memories mailbox and the letters will be mulched and planted with the flowers.

Gathering is at 6:00pm, the service starts at 6:45pm, and all candles are lit at 7:00 p.m. local time so that all at once, hundreds of thousands of persons commemorate and honor the memory of all children gone too soon.

Now believed to be the largest mass candle lighting on the globe, the 18th annual Worldwide Candle Lighting, a gift to the bereavement community from The Compassionate Friends (TCF), creates a virtual 24-hour wave of light as it moves from time zone to time zone. TCF’s WWCL started in the United States in 1997 as a small internet observance, but has since swelled in numbers as word has spread throughout the world of the remembrance. Hundreds of formal candle lighting events are held and thousands of informal candle lightings are conducted in homes as families gather in quiet remembrance of children who have died, but will never be forgotten.

The Compassionate Friends and allied organizations are joined by local bereavement groups, churches, funeral homes, hospitals, hospices, children’s gardens, schools, cemeteries, and community centers. Services have ranged in size from just a few people to nearly a thousand.

rn

Every year you are invited to post a message in the Remembrance Book which will be available, during the event, at TCF’s national website
