Brief Description of Event: Please join us for a gathering of remembrance created in honor of myniece, Violet Evelyn Ochoa, who was born still on August 12th, 2011. This event is to honor the babies who were taken too soon from pregnancy or infant loss. We will be meeting at 6:45 to come together, share our stories, and have a candlelight vigil starting at 7:00 pm. We will have luminary bags in memory of our babies and we will be reading the names of the babies we’ve lost. You will also be able to personalize a seashell in memory of your baby to either take home with you or leave on the beach.

If you’d like a name added to the list and a luminary bag with your baby’s name you can email me ahead of time at [email protected], message me through the facebook page, or we can always add it before we start.

You don’t have to live in Northeast Ohio to participate. Anyone can have a baby honored, no matter where in the world you are. We will post pictures of each luminary bag after the ceremony so that those of you who could not attend can still see the luminary bag made for your baby.

This event will be held rain or shine. Weather permitting, we will be meeting at the fire pit located on the western end of the beach. If the forecast calls for rain, we will be meeting at the beach shelter, also located on the western end of the beach.
