Our AFTER story:
He was my big brother. He taught me how to snowboard and how to play chess. He taught me how to be tough and how to cheat at poker. He is solely responsible for my morbid sense of humor.
He also made me feel like I was the most important person to him. At his celebration of life ceremony, I found out that dozens of others said the same thing. It takes a passionate person to make others feel that special.
And now, he is gone. No more birthdays for my big brother. This year, I will be older than he ever was.
I still celebrate his birthday because it’s a significant day. It’s a day that announced to the world, ‘Today a great person was born. He loved, and was loved.’
Let us continue to celebrate their day of birth.

I actually purchased one candle for myself and one for my brother, in memory of our sister who passed three years ago. We live on opposite sides of the country and aren’t able to see each other that much so I thought this would be the perfect way to honor her on her birthday. We lit them together over Skype and we were able to share a really special moment even though we were far apart and that’s priceless to me. It also gave us a chance to talk and reflect on a lot of happy memories, which we might not have done otherwise. I’m beyond grateful to AFTER for giving us such a unique way to keep her memory that much more alive. The booklet is beautiful and touching as well, and I love having the keepsake box. I’m so glad I decided to start this new tradition!
We are so glad you and your brother were able to find comfort with AFTER and what a beautiful way to honor your sister. We are so sorry for your less but very happy you found us. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your AFTER experience with us. We offer you Love and Light.

I purchased one of these for my sister after our brother died by suicide. In turn, I also received one in his and my late father’s memory (their birthdays right next to each other). I cried upon receipt and cannot explain how meaningful it was to have something to do in honor of them on their birthdays. In fact, I lit this candle on one brother’s birthday, then my father’s, then my other brother’s days later.
I hadn’t realized what a grief heavy 2 weeks that would be for me but it was such great comfort having a small thing I could do, that didn’t tax my coping abilities and provided a space to just be with my grief and honor their lives. This is the most beautiful gift I have ever given or received.
