With Christmas being a time for giving, it's also a time to remember those who will celebrate the holidays without their loved ones.

Camden Clark Medical Center held its fourth annual Lighting the Way at the south tower lobby Wednesday.

Dozens gathered at the ceremony to remember over 300 people that lost their lives in the community.

Those in attendance also got to see a candle display on the windows along with the lighting of the Christmas tree in the lobby.

It wasn't just an ordinary Christmas tree as the lights hold a special meaning.

The big blue lights represent the physicians, while the small blue lights represent Camden Clark employees and volunteers and the small white ones represent the community's.

"The candles are in memory of loved ones not necessarily patients in the hospital, but people in the community that understand it's a difficult time to be in the hospital and it's a true comfort to our patients, their families and loved ones," says Camden Clark Foundation Director, Kim Couch.

The Smoot Theatre Children's Chorus and the Apollonio Duo were also on hand singing Christmas carols.
