April and Caleb Our precious Caleb lived for seven years. He was a sacred gift to our family.
My daughter April spoke at a special ceremony at the Spanish Fork Cemetery tonight. A Christmas Box Angel Statue was placed in the Spanish Fork Cemetery on July 18, 1999. Since that time, a ceremony has been held every year on Dec. 6 for members of the community who have lost a child. The ceremony usually consists of a musical number and a story or speaker, then each attendee receives a candle and a white carnation. The candles are lit and then the flowers are placed at the base of the statue.
My daughter Arianne and her husband Jared were featured in a documentary on the "Hole in the Rock" pioneers that aired for the first time last night. I saw it and it was great. If you are interested it will be rebroadcast on KBYU channel 11 on Sat. Dec. 10th at 4:30.
