    Default Candles in honor of our babies at The Bridge

    A small way in which we can honor those we have lost is by lighting a candle in their honor. Gratefulness.org grants us the ability to light candles and compose short messages. We are also given as much time as we want to meditate on why and for whom we are lighting our candles. Candles may also be lit to offer support or gratitude. Each candle will stay lit for 48 hours. Here is the link to the candle lighting site:

    http://www.gratefulness.org/light-a-candle/

    Previously, we were able to create a "group" page that was dedicated solely to the candles of our members. Gratefulness.org has recently revised their website, however, and we now need to follow these steps in order to find and view all our members' candles on a single page.

    When you first compose a message for your candle, be sure to include either "K9C" or "k9c" somewhere within the body of your message.

    At any point in the future, if you want to view candles lit by yourself or other members of our family, type K9C (or k9c) in the search field in the upper right hand side of the candle lighting page.

    All candles with messages containing our family's initials will show. It is then possible to open the candles to read the messages.

    After opening a candle within the group, use the back arrow to return to the group rather than clicking on "Back to Candles."
    This way you can dip in and out of our family grouping and also quickly see how many candles are lit.

    Please note that if you want to light a new candle and you are already on our "K9C" page, you will need to click on "Exit" and return to the homepage to begin the candle-lighting process. It is a glitch in their software that no unlit candles are actually available on our "K9C" page.

    Leslie,

    Thanks so very much for the candle site.

    I have used it often and the more I view it the more special it becomes to me.

    Hugs. Scott

    Thank you for this; it is a very nice gesture....there is no "religion" per se for our pets, which I find sad. If I ever go to "Heaven" and none of my pups are there, I want out!

    I'll be back to the main site in a week or so...I just need to take a few deep breaths after several days of heartache.

    Thanks for offering this page where we can light candles in honor and memory of our beloved pets and Thanks for lighting one for Sugar. She told me that she is happy and not to cry. I am trying. Jean
