    Hi! I liked the idea of lighting a candle for the past, present, and future. Do you think it is appropriate to put living grandparents and older relatives in the past? My son is fortunate to not have many deceased relatives. Thank you!

    Hey Keri,

    The idea is good, but I would be careful with the phrasing… Telling someone they’re “part of the past” can be easily be misunderstood and backfire.

    I would rephrase it so that no grandparent gets offended. Something like “the previous generation”, “our generation”, and “the future generation”… you get the idea 🙂
