Tonight is a very special night in my small town. Tonight we remember and honor three beautiful woman that were so cruelly taken from us during a tragic home invasion last July. Our community of just under 30,000 (I know that is small to some and large to others!) has come together for a wonderful event called Lights of Hope. Over the course of the last several months, luminary kits were purchased by just about everyone in our community. The money raised went directly to a fund in the Petit Family name. Tonight is the night we place our luminaries along our streets and light the night with hope. It is truly a breathtaking and hope filled thing to witness. I took a walk along several streets and Jeff and I just came back from driving around town. It is truly a site to see. My limited photography skills do not begin to capture this amazing site.

This is my neighbor lighting his luminaries.
Dusk begins to fall and the true beauty begins to take shape.
More action shots as we were driving. The Town green is lined with light and the church was ringing its bells in remembrance.
Our Town Christmas tree is still shining bright.
To the Petit Family - we will always support and love you. To Jennifer, Hayley, and Michaela - we will never forget and we will honor you always.
