For many of us this Christmas it will be a little sad, some of us have lost loved ones and will feel like there is a part of us missing this year,

So I dedicate this thread to all of us who want to Acknowledge a lost love one,
and heck even a lost Pet

So I light a candle for my lost love ones,
May the light reach up to the sky

R.i.p Uncle billy, 2007,

I'll light my candle for all the troops who have given their lives this year and in years past.

Many blessings for the families and friends who have suffered loss.

This time of year is tough enough on the families who don't have much, if anything and to be without a father, son, wife, daughter, etc. becuase they're off fighting in a war, makes it even worse.

So my candle is also for the troops who are away from their families this Holiday Season and for the families who miss their loved ones.

God Bless.

Thank you asala for this thread. My heart is always sad this time of year. I have gotten better through the years thanks in part to having kids and seeing their joy. But, Christmas has always been sad for me since I was about 13 years old. I lost my grandmother that year on new years eve December 31 -1981. It was very hard to see her die. It was unexpected and I was not prepared for it. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was just a kid. My mother and dad left out of state to go see her in the hospital. They left 2 out of 3 of us kids with friends. I stayed with my girlfriend and had the worse time because I was so worried. When I was there a sudden emptiness came over me about the 3rd day. I cried at my friends house so hard. I told her my grandmother just died. I felt it so strong. She try to tell me it wasn’t so and she will be alright. No one called me they came home a day later and picked me up. I asked my mother if she died. She would not answer me till we got home. Then they told me. She did pass away the same hour I felt it. I loved my grandmother and have never forgotten her.

As if this wasn’t enough of Holiday sadness for me. I lost my 3 closes relatives all in the same year same month in December 1988. . My mothers sister my aunt passed December 10-1988. My favorite aunt whom I still think of daily passed away December 12-1988. My favorite Uncle of all times passed away December 22 1988. I cried so much those couple of weeks I literally ran out of tears. I didn’t know that was possible till then.

I miss them all so much. Its like a place is missing in me without them. I cry every year. I try and hide it from my kids I don’t want to upset them. But, it’s so hard. I haven’t learned how to let it go. There’s so many more loved ones who has passed but these have truly affected me.

So I thank you for the lighting of a candle idea. Today is the day that My uncle passed away. Oh the tears they just keep coming.

How beautiful, Roswell.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

What a beautiful thread, albeit sad.

I light a candle to all of the lost ones mentioned. I offer a hug to all of you, as a friend who really does care. *HUG*

I light another candle to my Pop Pop. I know he's up there looking down at me with his crooked smile watching me as I try to keep a semblence of normalcy in my life.

I'd like to light a candle for my grandpa.

He died 12 years ago, but I miss him every day.

Here's to Invisible candy, Tic Tacs, and the magic lamp.
