Welcome to Christopher's Candle
Written by Tina Morris, Mother of Christopher Baker
In the dark hours you are experiencing know You Are Not Alone.
On January 10th, 2007 my husband and I lost our 15 year old son, Christopher to suicide. This website was created as a support and encouragement to others who have lost a loved one to suicide. On this site you may light a candle and write a memorial for your loved one, read uplifting stories & articles, find a support group, and connect with other's who have lost a loved one to suicide through facebook.
Suicide loss brings with it many tears, questioning, anger, hurt, sadness, and a deep penetrating pain. It's real and it's important to give yourself permission to grieve deeply for a season, as stated by Linda L. Flatt in "Reflections of a Survivor". The best we can do as survivors is survive. We do that first and foremost, by walking through the pain. We take each day as it comes. If we can, we ask God for help to make it through.
Remember, there is always a living solution if we choose to seek it out.
May you find comfort in knowing you are not alone. May you reach out and ask for help. May God bless you and guide you as you journey through your loss.
