Penfield, N.Y. – Over 300 candles lined the Shepherd Home driveway in Penfield Monday evening.
On each glowing jar was a tag with the name of a loved one.
Families walked up and down the driveway, looking for the names they knew.
Tucked in the corner of the lights was a heart made out of the same jars and candles, each one tagged with a name of a victim of the Sandy Hook tragedy.
“We don’t know them, other then keeping them in our prayers,” said Betsy Inglis, executive director of the Shepherd Home. “We would hope this kind of violence would stop in our country. At least a little bit of lighting a candle again against the darkness, not just the darkness of the night but the darkness of evil, just helps us a little bit to think we are doing something.”
This was the second annual ‘Wings of Light’ at the Shepherd Home. It’s a way for people to memorialize and honor loved ones they miss during the holiday season, said Inglis.
