    A special angel marker has been ordered for the cemetery plots where Charlie and Braden are buried. Rest in peace little guys.

    Beautiful. The Angel overlooking will be perfect.


    I don't know that my tears will ever stop flowing when I read about Charley and Braden. Those sons of Susan have had a big impact on so many and now good is being done in their names.

    The angel was placed yesterday, December 3, and will be dedicated on Thursday, December 6. This is also the 3rd anniversary of Susan's disappearance.

    The statue is based on Richard Paul Evans book, The Christmas Box (a favorite book of mine!) (movie usually plays at Christmas time - good watch, btw!)
    History of the statues here: http://www.careandkindness.org/angel...isa_speech.htm

    I am so glad this was done. So glad.

    I drove past the cemetery yesterday and saw the angel. It is beautiful. It is visible from the road on 9th St.

    Amanda, thank you for taking the time to post the pictures. The angel is stunningly beautiful. I had also never seen the headstone before. It is perfect, absolutely perfect.

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.
