This beautiful memorial is a peaceful place for grieving parents whose children have died, before or after birth, to mourn, heal, and remember their beloved children.

Nearly 600 bricks, all in memory of children, have been placed at the Angel of Hope Memorial. Bricks will continue to be sold throughout the year at a cost of $100, with placement in the spring and fall. These special bricks may be purchased in memory of any child, regardless of age or where the child was born or lived.

They did not have to be Stow residents.

Bricks may also be purchased as gifts in memory of a child or children. Following placement of the bricks, an inspirational ceremony will be held for the families and friends to honor their children who have become a part of the memorial.
