    The Angel of Hope was delivered safely to Long Island today.
    What a beautiful Angel !
    The Construction project will begin in a few week to erect the statue in Eisenhower Park for

    ” Hope in its wings”

    WITH HOPE IN ITS WINGS, THIS MONUMENT OFFERS A PLACE OF LOVE, HEALING AND REMEMBERENCE FOR ALL THOSE WHO HAVE LOST A CHILD.

    THIS ANGEL WAS INSPIRED BY THE BOOK “THE CHRISTMAS BOX” WHERE A WOMAN MOURNS THE LOSS OF HER CHILD AT THE BASE OF THE ANGEL STATUE. THE ORIGINAL STATUE WAS COMMISSIONED BY THE AUTHOR RICHARD PAUL EVANS IN RESPONSE TO REPORTS THAT GRIEVING PARENTS WERE SEEKING OUT THE ANGEL AS A PLACE TO GRIEVE AND HEAL. THIS SIMPLE, NON-RELIGIOUS BUT SPIRITUAL STORY HAS BROUGHT HOPE TO THOUSANDS OF PARENTS WHO HAVE ENDURED THE DEATH OF A CHILD.

    PLEASE JOIN US EACH DECEMBER 6TH AT 7PM FOR A CANDLELIGHT VIGIL

    This Angel will represent hope to the thousands of parents who have endured the death of a child.What is an Angel of Hope?

    The Christmas Box, a best-selling book by Richard Paul Evans, inspired this statue. In the story, a woman mourns the death of her little daughter by making regular trips to the child’s grave, which is marked with an angel statue. (Angel of Hope) The statue evokes a profound and miraculous connection between mother and child and helps convey valuable lessons about the true meaning of life to others. The simple story has brought hope to thousands of parents who have endured the death of a child.
