Shooting Victims Families in Connecticut to get Angels From West Michigan

WZZM

So much sadness and sorrow enveloped the country following the tragic shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.  A senseless act that brought shock and despair to all of us.

In the aftermath there has been an outpouring of love flowing for the families of the children and teachers lost, and, Angels.

Our news partner, WZZM TV13, has a story about a West Michigan artist who is creating 26 special Angels in memory of the children and educators.

Cathy Schaeffer and her volunteer helpers are working overtime at her Plainfield Township home to finish making the angels and get them to the victims’ families in Connecticut in time for Christmas.

They’re making the 26 angels out of seasoned Michigan barn wood.  Each one is handmade with a name of one of the victims.  Each one has different character, just as each child and teacher had.

With the help of a  team of people, along with donations to cover the cost of materials and shipping, Schaeffer is hoping the angels will arrive at the fire station in Newtown by Christmas Eve.

Schaeffer may also send an angel to the family of Nancy Lanza, the mother of the Sandy Hook Elementary gunman, Adam Lanza.

What a loving thing to do.  All our prayers are with those Sandy Hook families.
