Not late at all Hedgehog. In my experience the second and third weeks after a loss can be the most difficult for immediate family. I'm sure Erin appreciates the continued thoughts and prayer very much, especially for all she loved.

I am learning this as I go along so apologies for saying this so late.

If people give a link to the picture of the candle as Simon did, I can include that in the Swamp Lights Map.

I'm posting this not because it needs to be on the map, but just to let people know:

When I lit a candle for Erin at my Tiny Town church, I also lit one for her father, with a prayer that he (and the rest of the family) would find peace. His message on the friends and family thread just communicated such grief that I felt the need to ask for God's help for him. I really can't imagine how he is coping with such a loss.

Not too late, I will be proud of the ship if I am still posting lights in a years time, Erin's family and such will still need prayer then whatever people's theology.

Right I have updated the map with those two. Sorry it took awhile. As far as I am concerned I am pretty sure the family will need prayer though out the coming year.
