The loss of a child is truly a devastating moment, but during the holidays it can prove to be even more difficult. To help with the emotions that can come along this time of year, the annual Duluth Angel of Hope Candlelight Vigil aims to bring parents together to offer support and a time of healing while honoring children who have lost their lives too soon.

"It's like a group that you belong to, but you don't want to. But you've got to wear that badge with honor to remember your child," said Angel of Hope, Board Member, Dan Ansell. "And the more you can talk about it, and be around people that have gone through the same thing, the easier it gets to talk about it. It helps in the grieving process in the healing of losing your child."

You can donate to the Angel of Hope at any participating Wells Fargo. Proceeds go to help buy things like candles and flowers to be placed at the statue.
