Lubbock honors Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A special ceremony held in Lubbock Tuesday night paid tribute to young lives lost too soon.

It's part of National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.

Suzy Emre helped organize the candlelight ceremony at 88th & Flint.

She lost two children of her own, and wanted to help others dealing with the same loss, so, she started the Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Group in Lubbock.

"It's a silent grief that we suffer from, because nobody wants to talk about it," Emre said. "It's a forbidden subject, and in reality we want to talk about it, because we did suffer a loss."

Tiffany Greening said, "It's kind of a good way to honor someone; it's also a good way to kind of get with people that understand your pain so that you can kind of share that story and relate to someone else that understands."

The group says attendance at Tuesday's event was double last year's and they hope that awareness will continue to bring out more who have suffered a similar loss.
