Christmas traditions woven into Laiken Lights

Stacey Fenwrick of Chino and her 14-year-old daughter Abigail create wooden ornaments they will be giving away during the 15th annual “Lights 4 Laiken” celebration. Abigail never met her sister, Laiken.

A night of festivities and lights has replaced the utter blackness felt by a mother in 2008 when she lost her 13-year-old daughter to acute lymphocytic leukemia.

For the past 15 years, a Christmas celebration has been held to mark the memory of Laiken Kenwood, who would have turned 27 years old this year, called “Lights 4 Laiken.”
