Our 2018 Candlelight Remembrance Service was held on Wednesday evening, December 12th. Many bereaved joined us to remember their lost loved ones and to share their grief, their tears and their smiles. As each person lit their candle, its light shone bright. And all of these lights shining together gave us a sense of the powerful presence those we cherished still have in our lives.
“And though my heart is heavy,
It’s also full of love,
And that’s enough to comfort me
While you’re in Heaven above.
Many thanks to all who played a major role in the success of this evening:

“I hold on to the love and life we knew.”
