Each year, on December 6th, parents and families of angel children, gather at beautiful Angel of Hope monuments around the country. It is a beautiful service, to honor and remember children that have passed on.
Each year, on the morning of the December 6th, The Ruby Jane Foundation meets at El Toro Memorial park to clean and polish the children’s markers in preparation for the service that night. Some parents are unable to visit their child’s resting place often, and are very comforted to find it looking beautiful and well kept when they come to the service that evening. We leave a flower on each marker, as a symbol of love and remembrance for each angel that rest there.
This is a great opportunity to service during the Christmas season. It is the perfect chance to serve with your children while teaching them about Heaven.

If you live in an area that there is an Angel of Hope, this would be a great project to do with your families on Saturday, December 6th, as well. Families often visit loved ones at the cemetery during this time of year, so a clean up of the markers anytime during the holidays would be greatly appreciated, I know!
