“Ooooh, candles!” exclaims LML.

GM rapidly explains that they are lit by people to remember friend or family who have died. She knows that LML’s first impulse will be to blow out the candles. “You can light one for you twin if you want to” she suggests, hoping that lighting a candle will be more appealing than blowing them out.

With just a little help LML lights a candle, places it into the holder and steps back.

“I wish you could come back” she says.

GM sighs, amazed that she has expressed so much, proud of her daughters acknowledgment of the loss of her two day old twin.
