This commemorative bronze statue known as the Angel of Remembrance will form the centerpiece of a new healing garden at Essentia Health St. Mary's Hospital in Detroit Lakes. The hope with the project is to create "a sanctuary of honor, remembrance, hope and healing to those who have lost children through miscarriage, stillbirth, infant loss, or at any age."
