Events

If you’ve never attended a Compassionate Friend Candle Lighting, I encourage you to do so this year, Sunday, December 9, 2018. It is a night where everyone is there for a common reason and a night when your child is the star.
 
On this night you will be able to outwardly honor and remember him/her without judgment. Our children are the reason for the gathering and we give them their time to shine.

"This is a beautiful, gentle time for us to "remember our children".
