If you think of Matthew this weekend, light a candle!

This was a tough week in our house, actually every week has been during these holidays. But we did get a wreath up at the cemetery and in Matthew’s garden. I will send a picture to post of his garden with the lights and deer. It is a comfort to us every night when it lights up.

Sunday, December 12th is “The Worldwide Candle Lighting” in memory of our children who are no longer with us…

Here’s the website if you want to check it out:
Compassionate Friends
Or you can light a candle in your house. Thanks for all your support. Matthew was truly blessed.

    A candle will be lit in our house for our angel and for his mom, dad, and sister whom I thank God for every day because I love them so much.

    Yes he was but so were we for the small amount of time he touched our lives. As sad as I am- I’m glad I knew him for the moment then never to have known him at all. We will be lighting a candle at our house. Matthew’s picture is next to an angel- we will place it right next to him. He is always in my heart and always in my prayers and often in my thoughts as his family is too. I love you all so much!
