"As we light these candles in honor of you, the flames represent our grief, our courage, our memories, our love and our pursuit for justice."

"The light of this first candle represents our grief. The pain of losing you is intense. It reminds us of the depth of our love for you."

"The light of this second candle represents our courage to confront our sorrow; to comfort each other; to change our lives."

"This third candle is a light to all of our memories of you. To the times we laughed, the times we cried, the times we were angry with each other, the silly things you did, the caring and joy you gave us."

"This fourth candle is the light of our love. Day by day, we cherish the special place in our hearts that will always be reserved for you. We thank you for the gift your life brought to each of us. We will love you always."

"The remaining collection of candles represents our ongoing quest for justice in your name. Others may see today as being the one year anniversary of our loss, but these candles represent the 31,536,000 seconds we have all thought about and missed you over the past year."
