“The names of those who have passed will be read and a candle will be lit in their honor,” said event organizer Sandy Boy. “It is a good opportunity to share a moment of togetherness in a safe place, while honoring their life. This time of year can be difficult for someone who has lost a loved one, let alone a child. You do not have to grieve alone.”

The ceremony concludes with flowers placed at the foot of the memorial. Young entertainer Sloan Wheeler is set to perform.
