Following a solomn ceremony including the reading of names of departed loved ones, North Country residents place roses and carnations at the foot of the Angel of Hope, the centerpiece of the Circle of Healing and Hope at CVPH Medical Center. The Circle provides a place for people to go for quiet contemplation, and to remember their sick or departed loved ones. The angel is based on the angel statue in the novel The Christmas Box by Richard Paul Evans. Paver stones can also be purchased through the Foundation at CVPH to be placed in the Circle of Healing and Hope in memory of a loved one.
