Cape Gazette CAPE LIFE FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30 - MONDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2012 Sl The 13th Annual Worldwide Candle Lighting of the Light- house Chapter of The Compas- sionate Friends will be held start- ing at 7 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 9, at Epworth United Methodist Church on Holland Glade Road, Rehoboth Beach. The Worldwide Candle Light- ing begins when the first candles are lit in New Zealand and then moves westward through vari- ous time zones as tens of thou- sands of bereaved parents, sib- lings, grandparents, relatives and friends around the globe join to- gether to light remembrance candles to honor the memories of children who have died but will never be forgotten. Guest speaker Gall Sezna, au- thor of the award-winning book "My Boys: A Mother's Story Af- ter Multiple Losses," will speak on "Writing Through Grief," re- lating to her dealing with the tragic deaths of two of her three sons within the span of two years and the subsequent divorce from her husband. She will share with bereaved families how she man- aged to pick up the pieces and provide insight on how she moved forward from over- whelming grief toward hope and healing. The evening's ceremony tran- scending all ethnic, cultural, reli- gious and political boundaries includes music, inspirational readings and a visual presenta- tion memorializing children who have died at any age. Lighted candles will be raised and a bell will toll as the name of each de- ceased child is read.
