Candle Ceremony

A lit candle is symbolic of the human soul. A Candlelight Ceremony is a powerful way to honor your loved one. Every attendee will receive a white candle to participate in the lighting ceremony. Each and every family we serve is given, as a gift a candle from the O'Donnell Funeral Service Family to you.
