The Angel of Hope Monument was installed at Abbie Griffin Park in September 2021 and is a tranquil place to remember, honor, and never forget the little ones who have gone too soon through pregnancy or infant loss. This monument is organized by the NH Chapter of the Tears Foundation and the Town of Merrimack has provided them space within the Park.
The Angel will be holding a baby and a poem of hope is etched in the granite next to the Angel. Two butterfly monuments will be placed on the sides of the Angel of Hope and include the names of babies who are loved and remembered. Benches have been placed so families can have a place to sit and reflect. Whether your child died due to miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death, may you find healing and peace with a public memorial to honor your child.
For questions about the Memorial, please contact the NH Chapter of the Tears Foundation:
