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.

    I just purchased the Deathiversary candle for one of my dearest friends that lost her sister to a car accident two years ago. As time passes it gets a little bit easier but you know it still hurts those closest to the deceased. I wanted to send my friend a little something to let her know that I missed her sister too and recognize she will always have a piece of her heart missing. This candle was perfect, its more than just a candle in a box. There was a booklet included that had such wonderful messages, there was a note handwritten on the inside and helped bring light to her day. Now she has a little more support when she misses her sister. Thanks for having this candle After!

      Thank you for your thoughtful and sweet review, Lori! We agree that as time passes, perhaps it gets a little easier but the pain will always linger. We are grateful you found AFTER for your friend and so, so sorry for her loss. We hope The AFTER Sympathy Box was a gentle reminder of her sister taken far too soon and something that brought her some peace. Thank you again, Lori. We offer you Love and Light.
