For those of you who donít know, I have been trying to get a Christmas Box Angel erected in my town. They are statues that are a place where grieving parents can visit. Parents leave flowers at the base of the statue. On December 6 each year at 7 pm a candlelight healing ceremony is held at the base of the angel. To see photos and read more on the background of these angels visit this site

Richard Paul Evans Angel Statues

In early October 2009 I sent letter to the Mayor, who loved the idea of a Christmas Box angel and told me to contact the park board. And told me to tell them that he was behind the idea and thought it would be good for our town.So I sent a letter to the Park Board with photos of the Christmas Box Angel on November 8. Didnít hear back and thought they had forgotten about it or just cast my letter aside. Hadnít heard anything until today. Woke up just now from a nap (had a headache) and I had a voice mail from the Leader of the Park Board!

He liked the idea and was bringing it up in the meeting they had tonight! If the other members of the board like it then Iíll be notified of the next board meeting and we can discuss how we start raising funds for our Angel and the location and such.

So Iím calling him tomorrow to find out IF the other board members liked the idea and whether I will be at the next Park Board Meeting! Pray for us!! This angel is very much a need in our community!

Quote:
I was finally able to get in touch with Mr Howard from the Park Board. They read my letter and proposal at the last meeting and EVERYONE was very interested in the Christmas Box Angel!!!!!

They said I definitely had my piece of land for it and Iím to appear at the next Park Board meeting on February 8 at 6 pm to discuss fund-raising and where the Angel Should be erected and about the memorial garden.
It looks like weíre embarking on the journey to getting An Angel of Hope!!

Please keep us in your prayers on the 8th and keep us in your prayers as we begin fund-raising.
