The Angel of Hope Memorial Garden was dedicated to the Village of Coal City, Illinois, on October 7, 2006, as a place for those suffering the loss of a child to honor the child's memory. Located in Campbell Memorial Park , the highlight of the garden is an angel monument surrounded by walkways paved with bricks that can be purchased with a special message in memory of a deceased child of any age, from conception to adulthood. Bricks will be placed in the spring and fall of each year, with the order deadline for spring placement on February 1 and for fall placement on August 1.
On December 6 - at 7 pm, each year, Angels of Hope, Inc., hosts a Candlelight Remembrance Ceremony to which the public is invited to leave a white flower at the base of the angel to honor the memory of a child of any age. It is our hope that the annual vigil will provide a place for grieving families to unite and find strength and comfort in one another.
