Losing a child trumps all other deaths, as parents of children who have died will tell you eloquently.

Sunday, throughout the world, parents and friends of children who died will light candles in their honor.

In Spokane, the candlelight remembrance, sponsored by The Compassionate Friends Spokane chapter, will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Veradale United Church of Christ in the Spokane Valley.

Jack McPeck of The Spokane Chapter of The Compassionate Friends (TCF) said that the "death of a child is devastating and it’s important to the family that the child always be remembered. That’s why members of the Spokane Chapter of The Compassionate Friends (TCF) will participate in an annual worldwide event designed to honor the memories of all children, regardless of age, who have died. The chapter is joining Sunday, December 11, 2011 with hundreds of organized memorial services around the world for The Compassionate Friends 15th annual Worldwide Candle Lighting, an event now believed to be the largest mass candle lighting in the world."
