Our AFTER Story:

The coroner called late at night. A night I will never forget. My brother Daniel, age 34, had killed himself. The following week was the worst week of my life. It’s a dark place I do not like visiting. And yet, every year it comes back, demanding acknowledgment. I realized that this horrible week was not just about missing my brother, it was also about my new life without him and the pain that comes with contemplating our mortality.

I made this candle as a release of that acknowledgment. So long as I see the illuminating flame of this candle during the darkest day of my year—I know I will be okay.

Light this candle to lighten up the darkness.
