    Candlelight Vigil for Mr. Berns will go on as scheduled for this evening: “We are planning a special event Sunday, February 21, 2016.
    We invite all friends, family, supporters and searchers to join us on the street where the fire started, and hold a candlelight vigil for those whose lives have been shattered by PTSD, all who are still missing, our VETS who are not getting the help they need for one reason or another, and to bring our Aaron home.
    We welcome all the prayers and blessings that come our way, and thank you in advance for sharing our event with others that may want to join us. Please bring a flameless candle or light and dress warm. If you would like to say a few words, sing a song or read a poem or bible passage, please contact us at [email protected] to be included in the ceremony.” https://www.facebook.com/events/111101665942216/
