A Candle to Remember

On the eve of Christmas we have made it a priority to visit the Spanish Fork cemetary to remember loved ones. The cemetary is all lit up from the candles and luminars. It's just a beautiful sight to see. This year I found a whole kit of luminars that would do everyone on our list. They were really easy to put together.
Isn't the snowflake pretty all lit up?

Our first stop is my neice's, Kiplyn.
Then we make it around to my parents.
And we visit Stuart's sister Marriden.
Our final visiting place is that of Stuarts parents.
This tradition is something I look forward to every year. What a special way to remember our loved ones on such a wonderful occassion.
