The National Children’s Memorial Day is Sunday, Dec. 8. Candles will be lit by families and friends in homes around the world in memory of children who have died. Candle lighting will begin in New Zealand and end on the West Coast of the United States, illuminating the globe in a 24-hour wave of light. Compassionate Friends of Rockford, Peterson Chapel, and Buffalo Hospital Foundation are sponsoring this event to make the public aware of this special day.
Parents of children who have died are invited to attend a candle-lighting ceremony from 6:30-
8 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8, at King’s House at 621 First Ave. S. in Buffalo. Parents may bring a single framed photo of their child for display if they wish. Time for sharing reflections and memories will be part of the evening as well.
