I went to the Christmas Memorial Service at Brenan’s Funeral Home tonight. It was the first time I went and I just felt that I needed to be there. The joyous holiday season can be somewhat of a struggle when you don’t have your spouse, but it’s things like this that help.
As I listened to the choir and watched the lighting of the memory candles I could feel the peace of the season. It was healing to be with hundreds of others that were also there to honor their loved ones.
Brenan’s gave everyone a memento, a white band that say “In Memory” and I think that sums it up perfectly. Our loved ones will always be “In Memory” and they need to be part of the season. Lighting a memory candle is a great way to celebrate their lives and honor our memories of them.
