Custom Memorial Candles

We would love to share with you something we have been working on.  Here is  a picture of our Memorial Candles that were commissioned by a Blue Moon Candles customer to send to the families of the Sandy Hook tragedy.

Each Candle features their name, Angel Wings (boys with a blue wash, girls with pink and teachers silver), and one of two poems.  These candles are made with all natural wax and an essential oil blend of Lavender & Vanilla for peacefulness.

Emotionally it was difficult for me making these candles, as I thought of each name, each person-I can only begin to imagine the loss each family endures.  As a mother my heart is broken for them.

As I made these, I took the time to pray for the families and send all the love and positive energy I could their way.  I hope these candles bring them light, and a peaceful mood for them to remember each loved one.

The angels are always near to those who are grieving, to whisper to them that their loved ones are safe in the hand of God.  ~Quoted in The Angels’ Little Instruction Book by Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994

When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.  ~Kahlil Gibran

Wishing you all peace tonight…kiss your loved ones, hold them tight and tell them how very dear to you they truly are.

With much Love!

Candles as a Memorial…

Many of us have lost a loved one and have felt and continue to feel that heartache…I created these Memorial Candles after my Gran & Grandpa passed away. I like to light my Candle and remember happy times I spent with them. We also use these to celebrate Births and Weddings. Our family loves them, so I thought we should make them available to others.

This Candle is for my dad Stanley ❤ .  It is almost empty but you can see how the text is illuminated and the candle burns bright and clean.

These candles are available in any color you choose – I like to suggest that you pick something meaningful to you- that is the beauty of choice!  They also are available in tons of fragrances, whatever reminds you of happy thoughts or brings you peace.

Our classic square glass Memorial Candles are  refillable so they never need to be empty,  or you can choose from any of our other candle shapes if you prefer something different.  The text on the candle can be customized or you can use one of our texts.  Candles can also be personalized for Weddings and Births as Celebration Candles~ for any occasion you wish! You can purchase your Memorial Candles now, here at Blue Moon Candles.

There are some who bring a light so great to the world that even after they have gone, the light remains.

Here is a link to some AMAZING lanterns they float in Hawaii as a memorial.

A Lifetime Friend…

Last night was dad’s memorial celebration.  We had a house full of friends and family (thank you to all who showed up or sent kind thoughts) and we felt very blessed.

During our celebration I had the opportunity to meet a life long friend of my father in law’s.  Dad was an electrical contractor and he met his friend when hired to work for him years ago.  They continued their friendship and working relationship for many years-he even transferred work along to Scott after dad retired.

During the evening we released butterflies, lit candles, had many great toasts and remembered good times with dad.  During one of those moments of sharing dad’s friend Terry was very emotional, there was not a dry eye in the place.  It struck me that we should all be so lucky as to have a friend that misses us so much when we are gone that they are moved to tears.  I agree with Terry…dad left this world a better place for having been in it.

I am taking this lesson away from that experience: I want to be the type of girl worthy of such a friend.

Love, Laughter & Candlelight!
