Scent-Sations, Inc. CEO Bob Scocozzo, one of the company's owners had this to say:

"My 18 year old daughter, Mia asked me what we were going to do to help since she knows how much we have helped kids in the past.  I told her we would take massive action quickly, and that I was confident that our national and international distributor force as well as our customers would step up to help make a difference."

This Limited Edition "In Memory Of" 16oz jar candle features white wax, a Spring floral fragrance, and special label showing the silhouettes of a boy and girl, holding hands with arms outstretched with a sunset in the background.  The tagline, "A brief time in our arms...Forever in our hearts" is a powerful reminder of just how fragile life can be.
