The Share Children's Memorial

    SHARE is a support group for parents and families that have lost children of any age. SHARE is sponsored by Blessing Hospital.
    The Children's Memorial is a tribute to the children we have loved and lost. It was dedicated on April 19, 1998. The memorial is a place of solace, remembrance and comfort, especially for parents, grandparents and others without a gravestone to mark the life of a child they miss.
    We invite you to come to see the memorial and remember "The Children", to whom this memorial is dedicated. It is dedicated to those who have died and all those who will follow this difficult journey in the times to come.
    In celebration of our children who are now in the loving arms of God, a balloon release is held each spring on the Fourth Sunday in April at the memorial. Balloons are provided for your special angel. The unseen currents, which will carry the balloons, are the memories of the children that carry love and remembrance into the world.
    Blessing Hospital sponsors SHARE and this children's memorial project. It was funded entirely by donations. Greenmount Cemetery has donated the land and the permanent care to the grounds and the plantings.
    For additional information or to make a donation to the memorial, contact: Director of Volunteer Services, Blessing Hospital, Broadway at 11th Street, Quincy, Illinois 62305-7005, 217-223-8400 ext. 6821.
    SHARE meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the Blessing-Reiman College of Nursing, Broadway and 11th Streets in Quincy, IL.
