Friends invite community to honor, remember children

The North Olympic Peninsula Chapter of The Compassionate Friends hosts a Candle Lighting Service at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 9, at New Life Open Bible Church, 402 E. Sixth St., Port Angeles.

The event is a remembrance service to “honor and remember children that have left us too soon,” organizers say. This service includes poems, stories and readings as well as a music/video presentation.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a picture of their child/grandchild/sibling to place on the table and to provide one by text or email for the slide show prior to Dec. 9.

The event is held in conjunction with Worldwide Candle Lighting gatherings.

The group offers “hope, friendship and understanding to bereaved parents, siblings and grandparents who have suffered the loss of a child or children at any age.”
