Candlelighting Service

Last night I went to the candlelighting service at Eastminster church in East Lansing. How wonderful it was. You choose a candle to decorate and then its lit during a beautiful ceremony where you announce the name of your loved one that has passed. It's emotional and difficult to do, but it's also a way to say "Jim Bowerman" out loud....as if to say: he mattered, he lived on this earth, people miss him, he made us happy, we love him. Think of Jim today, he loved you, too. Joanne (Jim's MOM)
