A child’s death is not what we expect from life’s natural course of events. We assume that children outlive their parents and when this unthinkable tragedy occurs, it is hard to imagine that anything can make a family whole again or allow us to move forward with our lives.
A little over a year ago we imagined a place of solitude, a place to reflect and a place to remember our children. We wanted to create a place to soften the sadness of visitors who needed a special place to honor the memory of their child. Our dreams came true last year when we were granted permission to build such a place at the southwest corner of Lakeview Park. Our Children’s Memorial became a reality.
