Holidays are often difficult for anyone who has experienced the death of someone loved. Rather than being times of family togetherness, sharing and thanksgiving, holidays can bring feelings of sadness, loss and emptiness.
One local funeral home offered a healing light of opportunity during their annual Candlelight Memorial on Tuesday, December 9, 2014 at McNary-Moore Funeral Services in Colusa.
The Candlelight Memorial service was held to give individuals and families a moment of reflection during the holidays.
Dozens attended the service which took place at the McNary-Moore Chapel in Colusa, where everyone was welcome.
Guests took place in singing hymns, a moment of prayer, and memorializing the names of loved ones as candles were lit.
Rev. Ken Edwards officiated the service.
