… is seeing light in spite of being surrounded by darkness.Plans to erect an angel monument in the Michiana area started in the fall of 2000.
A group of bereaved parents and other community members shared a vision of a quiet place where families could go to remember their children and heal. With this vision in mind, the group decided to create a memorial garden with the Angel of Hope as it’s centerpiece. The Angel of Hope Memorial Garden was dedicated on Sunday, October 28, 2001 with over 500 persons in attendance.
The four foot tall bronze statue of a little girl angel with arms reaching outward provides comfort to those who grieve. The memorial bricks which make up the ‘Path of Lost Dreams’ help families and other visitors to remember and pay tribute to those children, regardless of age, whose parents and families must go on without them.
