Our AFTER Story:

The first Christmas after my brother Daniel died was non-existent. My family decided we were not going to celebrate anything; to not enjoy ourselves. We couldn’t and didn’t want to deal with ‘happiness.’

Friends texted ‘Merry Christmas!’ and I responded ‘happy random Thursday!’ Everyone was off having fun and enjoying their alive loved ones. I was bitter and angry. Only a handful of people acknowledged the pain I was experiencing. Those people had experienced it too. I created this candle to be there for you when everyone else seems to be so merry, and you are so not. We acknowledge your pain.
