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!


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!
