An informal group of people have decided to pay tribute to Connor this coming weekend to coincide with the Lovingston Annual Christmas Parade Saturday December 4th at 4PM.

A special Facebook page titled, Light A Candle For Connor, has been set up asking people to light and display a candle this Saturday night at the Lovingston Christmas Parade and at homes in the county.

Connor’s Memorial Facebook page above asks:

“A plea to you and your family and asking you to light a candle on Saturday night, December 4th at 6pm and place it in a window where it can be seen. Ask your friends and neighbors too, re-post it on Facebook, text it, Tweet it, Myspace it! How nice would it be to look out our windows Saturday and see a glow, a show of lights as a small gesture to say as a community Connor is in our hearts and will not be forgotten!
UPDATE (12/1): Anyone attending the Lovingston Christmas Parade at 4pm are also encouraged to have a lighted candle (traditional or electric) during the parade.

Let’s make sure every house has a candle in it this coming Saturday night!
