Cliff and Verna Bunting light candles to honor the name of their daughter who died at age six at Marco Island Cemetery's twelfth annual Christmas box angel memorial service on Dec. 6. They have attended every service since 2000.

The air was balmy with barely a breeze. A waxing moon peaked out from the clouds. A perfect evening for candle lighting. People gathered from all walks of life at the base of Marco Island Cemetery’s Christmas Box Angel. They are members of the worst club in the world, a silent fraternity, a fraternity of those who have lost a child.
