This candle represents our grief.
The pain of loss is intense.
It reminds us of the depth of our love.
It represents the courage to confront our sorrow,
the courage to comfort each other
and the courage to go on.
It represents you memory - the times we laughed, the times we cried,
and the care and joy we shared - memories that are ours forever.
It is the light of love. As we enter the holiday season,
each day, we cherish the special place in our hearts
that will always be reserved for you.
We thank you for the gift
your life brought to each of us.
And it is the light of hope.
It reminds us that where there is darkness, there will be light.
May the glow of the flame be a symbol of hope
as we come together to honor the memories of those we love.
