Our Garden of Angels was started originally at the place where the police discovered the body of Amy Robinson. I went to the place where Amy's body was found, and it was my thought that Amy should be remembered. It is due to the fact that I wanted her life to be remembered that I began the Garden of Angels.
One of the goals of the Garden of Angels is to keep the focus on the memory of the life of the person who was murdered. So often it is the perpetrator that is long recognized after the funeral and the victim in society is soon forgotten. I was not going to let that happen ever again to victims in our area. Our family members are going to be remembered.
Amy never liked to be alone, so the family of Vern Price put a cross for Vern next to Amy's. Also the family of Chad Houston put in a cross for him as well. The Garden of Angels then started to take on a life of its own. Others started to add their crosses. Soon we had 27 crosses in our garden.
Later, thanks to donations by several companies and individuals, the new Garden of Angels was built. A&A Construction gave us some land for this new garden. Now we have more than 125 crosses. Each cross has its own "story" because all of these crosses are erected in memory of murder victims that have left this world too soon. These crosses also represent a family that will remember their loved ones forever. The trees in the Garden of Angels signify survivors whose life actions focus on stopping other tragic events from reoccurring. It is the goal of the Garden of Angels to take the tragic and then formulate a little magic. We are about kindness, hope for tomorrow and helping others. How wonderful it is that no one need wait a single day to make the world a better tomorrow. Please help us stop abuse and violence.

Our Garden of Angels hosted the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims on Sunday September 24th
We dedicated three new crosses - for Kaytlynn Cargill (found in a landfill near the garden), Colby Michael Bozo and Faith Norman. We dedicated a memorial for the police officers murdered and injured in Dallas in 2016.
The winner of the 50/50 drawing donated the money to the garden. It was a great success and nearly 100 people showed up.

*** IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL MEMBERS OF OUR GARDEN OF ANGELS ***
THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS HAS DETERMINED THAT THE GARDEN CAN NOT CONTINUE TO OPERATE WITH THE MONETARY DEFICITS IT NOW FACES. WE ARE FORCED TO RE-INSTATE THE POLICY REQUIRING DUES TO BE PAID.
Effective Immediately dues of $5 a month/ $60 a year will be re-instated. This is necessary due to the cost of running the garden. Bills continue to add up -- electricity, water, property taxes, web fees, costs of maintaining the garden (supplies to clean the garden, weed control, etc.)
If you can not afford the dues an alternative is to volunteer your time and schedule to donate some time working at the garden - i.e. cleaning up, if you need this alternative call one of the board of directors to work our arrangements.
