I received something in the mail the other day and then read about the same thing in the newspaper yesterday. Compassionate Friends (an organization that provides support for bereaved parents) is sponsoring a world wide candle lighting. This candle lighting is a ceremony to remember children who have passed away. It is held on December 14th (which I believe is on a Sunday) at 7:00pm for each time zone. This is to cause kind of a wave of lighting around the world for 24 hours. Please take part in remembering Ava along with the other beautiful children who have lost their lives.
Another thing that I will make a tradition is the lighting of a candle on special events such as holidays to represent Ava celebrating with us. I hope this will make it easier for our family to remember that although we can not see or touch her that she is still with us.
Remember to light your candle on Dec. 14th 7:00pm to help remember little angels like our precious Ava.

and the many, many more little angels that families are missing every day.
If you would like, you can send me a picture of your candle and I will try to use the pictures to make something special. Thanks.
*Sorry, I could not figure out how to make the pictures all the same size.
