In Memory of Kristin Kay Smith, 10/1/1986 – 12/29/2000

Light A Candle In Memory Of A Loved One (Original poster: Virginia Wiersma) December 10, 2003

Filed under: The forum from the old website — Taryn @ 10:47 pm

On Sunday, December 14, families around the world will light candles in memory of a child who died. It could be a premature infant or a grown son or daughter killed in combat, but the message is the same; remembrance for families who are bereaved. The candle-lighting is set for 7 p.m. in each time zone. Hundreds of organized lightings will take place at sites across America (including some Hard Rock Cafes) courtesy of The Compassionate Friends, who sponsor the annual Worldwide Candle Lighting. You also can light a candle in your home. For details, or to learn about the 600 chapters of The Compassionate Friends, go to http://www.compassionatefriends.org or call

Taryn, Amber and Cheyenne, we remember, and we will light a candle at the Childrens Memorial Park.

Kristin, we remember, you are in our hearts.

Our love,

Mom and Dad/
Grandpa and Grandma
