The lighting of a Memorial Candle not only provides a gesture of sympathy and support to the immediate family during their time of need but also provides the gift of extending the Book of Memories for future generations.
The first time I met David Platte there was an immediate kinship between us which grew into great love. He was enchanting, kind and generous to a fault. No one could make me laugh like David. I’ve never known a love like this, and I’m grateful for it and will carry it with me until we meet again. I will borrow from W.H. Auden as I still have no words.
”He was my north, my south, my east my west. My working week and my Sunday rest. My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song; I thought that love would last forever, I was wrong.”
This Book of Memories brings those affected by loss together by encouraging communication and self-expression. By giving friends and family a special place to tell their stories and express their feelings of loss, it helps them care for one another during a very difficult time.
