    "I wanted this figure to be a strong message of hopefulness and healing. The gradations of gold and white suggest a glow from within.

    "Vigil can be seen as a welcoming piece as well as a bereavement piece; a healing piece, a serene piece, a piece of comfort and mindfulness."

    Vigil and the angel with the little heart

    Submitted by Jesse Daniels in CA, October 2016

    My handsome, beautiful, and brilliant son, Erik passed away in his sleep when he was 16 - 9 years ago. It was unexpected and devastating. I bought the little angel with the heart and glued a picture on it of him and everyday I light a candle for him, but it fell and broke. I miss him so much! I love him so completely. I adored him, even with his faults, even when he was so very difficult and challenging (the bright ones always are). But he had a depth to him, and insight and such deep love that any hardships we went through were overshadowed by the light inside him. He loved nature and scuba diving, he was a proud boy scout. He was funny and charming. After the memorial when people were gathered at the house, I isolated myself to his and his brother's room. After a while his friends gathered around me and showed me pictures they had taken on their phones and shared funny stories. He wrote a very lengthy letter to one of his high school teachers that he had given a hard time to and recounted all the things he had done with the words, "I'm sorry" after each line. One time when I was sitting in my arm chair reading, I looked up and he had been looking at me and I felt complete love radiating from him. These two figures will be on both sides of his memorial candle.

    Vigil

    We lost our second son in 2013, just three weeks after his first birthday to SUDC. A few months later we discovered we were pregnant with out Rainbow. Our third son was born in 2014, just two days after our angel's second birthday. In January 2015, I was diagnosed with Stage IV Metastatic Melanoma. I developed a brain tumor in July 2015. I have fought and won many of my battles. In September of this year, I had to say goodbye to my students (I teach high school) because I am now undergoing chemotherapy for the next three months. The Vigil figurine has touched me. It just reminds me that I have people who are praying for our family and have been since the passing of our angel.

    Vigil

    Submitted by Sandy Gumm in Arizona, October 2016

    My favorite and most meaningful piece is "Vigil". Why? Ever since I was a young girl, am now 68, my Mom would leave one of those 1050's electric candles in our kitchen to light the way for family and remember those gone. Each night it sat there shining on. So I too would leave light on. Sometimes a "real" candle, sometimes a little electric tee light. My dear husband always marveled at this tradition- it was new to him. Recently his health had deteriorated so much that he was given a short time to live. While taking care of business I went into our hardware store and there sat "Vigil". Going through this time, this sweet figure brought me some measure of piece. Home she came and I explained to my husband, "I want you to know a light will always shine for you, day and night." And so she does ... at my home in Arizona

    Vigil - I collect willow tree to remember my daughter that passed away in 2010. During Christmas we go to vigil lighting for parents that list their children. This beautiful piece reminds me of the vigils for my daughter. My daughter was 3yr old when she died I have 8 figures so far that remind me of her.

    I was sent this beautiful and stunning piece by a close friend. She knows how much I love Willow Tree. I'm quite ill at the moment and she doesn't live near me so she sent this piece to be there because she can't be. Needless to say, I cried. It's such a tactile piece too. Willow Tree at its best.

    Submitted by Michelle in Midwest, February 2016

    I got Vigil for my confirmation into the Catholic Church from a beautiful friend. It was the perfect gift since I was receiving the Holy Sprit. This piece was perfect. Just like the tongues of fire above the apostles head she is carrying a candle which is also lit. I can't say enough about this beautiful piece. It is perfect for anyone and any occasion!
