Extreme cold made it a quiet night at Perham’s Angel of Hope Memorial Park during this year’s vigil, held last Friday evening, as it caused the gathering of visitors to move indoors, across the street to Crosspoint Alliance Church.

The scene at the park was serene, with the statue and nearby evergreen trees lit up and walkways cleared of snow. Some of the attendees brought ornaments to hang on the trees and white flowers to set by the statue, in memory of their lost loved ones.

The Angel of Hope Vigil is held every year as a way for those who have lost a child to connect with each other, remember and reflect. This was Perham’s 10th annual vigil.
