Lighting candles in memory of loved ones

Dillard Funeral Home/Hillcrest Memorial Park and the Liberty Mortuary each held their annual Christmas candlelight services of remembrance on Saturday. Hundreds were in attendance at both locations. Loved ones got the chance to hear beautiful music along with inspirational messages as they gathered to light candles at their loved ones’ places of rest.
