For years, Jill Grant was an active member of Facebook's eclectic wax community, a group of thousands of diehard candle fans who swap tips on scents, soaps and sales. Since the news of Grant's death spread, hundreds of fellow wax enthusiasts have posted farewell messages, shared touching stores or donated to a memorial auction which begins January 10-12, 2014. Proceeds from the auction will be donated to two animal shelters.  You are invited to participate in the auction by visiting the link below:
