Thank you so much Lioness for posting this information for us. I will never forget our dear Meme nor her words of encouragement given over the years. I know she is rejoicing with her husband and her dear dog who went before her.

What sad news! My heart goes out to Meme's beloved young relative. May your sweet memories of Meme bring you and the rest of your family peace at this time.
Meme taught me grace. I will try to be more gracious and forgiving of others, as Meme was. I will try to give more gentle huggles. I will carry Meme with me always, as she was a true friend to us all. A gentle, encouraging leader.
I just added a new one but the other 3 are burning very low.
Just wanted to let you all know that no "logging in" or membership is required to participate in the candle website.
You can add your name (up to five letters) where it asks for your initials ... or you can leave that blank. You can add a message or not. Do whatever works for you.
Each "virtual candle" will "burn" for 48 hours, gradually getting smaller, until it's burned away.
What I like about this candle website is that it's called "GRATEFULNESS". So it's a place to express gratitude.
You don't have to have any religious/spiritual belief system. It's just a place to contemplate gratitude. You can bring into this whatever depth of meaning is appropriate for you.
I've been checking the site frequently ... many people have lit candles for Meme ... each of which has burned for its allotted hours.
You are always welcome to light a new candle at any time.
Nobody is obligated to do this -- it's just provided as an alternative way for people to express themselves.
All are welcome.
By the way, lighting candles at this site was a tradition started by our member peppermint66 who began a candle site for one of our SqualorSurvivors members who passed away in 2007. We've added a new candle site for each member who has passed on.
