Virtual Candlelight vigil/rally for Alzheimer's

You can light a virtual candle for a loved one with Alzheimer's for free (or with a small donation...come on, make a small donation) at the Alzheimer's Association website.
My dad's candle is here.  It says, "Miss you, Dad.  Enjoy the Elsewhere Bar and be kind to the Newbies."

From the site:
On the evening of March 7, 2010, advocates will gather on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, share their stories and light candles in honor of loved ones. This moving ceremony is part of the Alzheimer's Association annual Alzheimer's Action Summit. Show your support by lighting a virtual candle now and becoming an Alzheimer's champion. You will be able to write a personal message that will appear on this site.
If you are on FACEBOOK, the Alzheimer's Association is asking you to put this as your status:
More than 5,000,000 people in the U.S. are living with Alzheimer’s disease. If you have been touched by this disease or know someone who has, please post this as your status and use your VOICE in the fight to end Alzheimer’s.
