Nelson County, Virginia
On Thursday 12.2.10, friends and family said goodbye to 7 year old Connor Craig of Shipman. He was killed in a tragic 2010 Thanksgiving Weekend hunting accident. Connor’s funeral was held at Rodes United Methodist Church today.
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.
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!
