Celebrating Each Light
Vigil remembers children no longer with us
COAL CITY, Ill. — As they filed into Campbell Memorial Park in Coal City Thursday night, each of the more than 200 people was handed a lit candle to hold against the cold night sky.
Some people brought their own white flowers to the candlelight vigil; others accepted them as they came through the white picket fence. The flowers would be put at the base of the Angel of Hope statue during the annual ceremony.
Each person was at the ceremony to remember a child, of any age, who has passed away.
