The Rockford community comes together to provide comfort and support for those who lost a child.

Dozens of people gathered at Waterside Park downtown for the Angel Statue of Hope Candlelight Vigil.  The ceremony is one of the Stateline’s most somber events.  Well-wishers laid flowers at the base of the statue.  Organizers say it’s a way to provide closure and support.

“This gives, if you will, a universal spot for those people to come and gather and find that hope that they’re looking for,” said Christine Tillou who attended the vigil.
