KJ’s Angels holds benefit
LIVERPOOL, N.Y. -- People gathered at the Holiday Inn in Liverpool Sunday to help families who have lost their children.
KJ's Angels is an organization that puts markers on gravesites for babies who have died. The benefit featured guest speakers, a silent auction and memorials to infants who have died in the last year. The foundation started with one grieving mother who wanted to do something to help people like her.
"My husband and I, we looked around and saw all these unmarked graves. We decided maybe these people don't have their babies marked because they don't have enough money. I went back to Hospice where we were having bereavement counseling and just threw the idea out. 'What do you think if we started raising money to purchase the markers that they can't afford to do?'" said Linda Hicks, co-founder of KJ’s Angels.
