FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - Parents, grandparents and siblings gathered to remember family members who have died. It's a world-wide annual ceremony.

The First Presbyterian Church in downtown Fort Wayne hosted the local chapter of The Compassionate Friends candle lighting ceremony Sunday night.

Families gather and remeber their lost children and siblings by lighting candles, sharing pictures, listening to music and speaking to each other.

It's a group that bonds over a unique, tragic experience. Members of The Compassionate Friends encourage others who have gone through the pain of losing a loved one to join. For more information on what the group does and how you can join, visit their website: www.compassionatefriends.org
