Vigil to honor memories of children who left too soon

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

A candlelight vigil planned for Sunday, Dec. 8, will bring bereaved families together to honor the memories of their children. Set to take place at the University of Maine at Machias Performing Arts Center, the Machias event is timed to coincide with a worldwide vigil organized by The Compassionate Friends, a group that offers support to families after a child dies.

“It’s believed to be the biggest candlelight vigil in the world,” said Shelley Roberts, one of the local organizers.
