Faith is like a candle flame, a glow that keeps us strong, and faith is there to see us through when things seem to go wrong. Life's not always easy, we're bound to have some sorrow, but faith can help to get us through, to a better day, tomorrow. So when you burn this candle, and you see it's steadily light, remember that your faith will help make dark days seem brighter.
We love you mom/dranz and will carry you in our hearts always.
