On Sunday, December 9th at 7:00 PM, the Oneonta Region Chapter of The Compassionate Friends will join other chapters worldwide to observe The Compassionate Friends Candle Lighting. The annual event provides a time for families to remember their departed children and to openly acknowledge the special place they have and will always have in their hearts. Anyone who has lost a child of any age is invited to attend. Close relatives and friends are also welcome. Parents may wish to bring a small photo of their child, and should arrive at least 15 minutes early to set up the photo on the memory table. The ceremony will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 12 Ford Avenue in Oneonta, NY. For more information, please call Diana Friedell at 607-433-2089 or Al & Kathryn Davino at 607-746-7396, or visit www.tcfoneonta.org.
