Aunt Jo's Angel Rock Garden

   To all my Very Special Angel Friends


Soon I am going to make a special flower garden in honor of my sweet beloved niece, Leah Victoria Avril.

I have been trying to think up a unique way to honor and remember her. She was and is so loved!

I am going to make an Angel Rock Garden.

I will go to the river where she was baptized and pick up flat river rocks. I would like to put all our Angel's names and dates on the rocks. If you want your Angel's name on a rock in Leah's Garden, let me know by adding it to this page.

When I get finished I will post pics of your Angel's rock for you on this page.

You can then copy and paste if you like.

I thought this would be a great way to remember all our so special angels.

 Give me some feedback on this project if you like.

Thank you and I appreciate all the kindness you have shown.  Leah's Aunt Jo


P.S. Several in the family are making special gardens also. I will post pics of them too when they are ready.

If you have a special flower you like and I can get it to grow I will plant it by your rock.

Just as a token of rememberance.

I have started on the garden and almost have it done. I still have a lot of rocks to paint with Angel Friends names, but I have the ones who are listed below done.

 I am going to try to do all Leah's Angel friends, it may take me a couple of months to get them all done. Here is a few pics of the garden so far. It is a work in progress, so I may change some things.

Below are some of my "Angels in Waiting" rocks, waiting to be finished.

I wish I could paint angel rocks all day until I get them all done, but I am working on them as I can. I feel like I am touching a tangible part of the angels when I hold the rocks to paint. It is very gratifying and comforting to me to do this for our beloved angels.

Heaven has another angel baby....
My sweet little angel baby Jackson Edward Bauer, I know we only had you on this earth for four days but your Nana wants you to alway remember how blessed I felt to be with you those days and to finally hold you in my arms before God took you to be in Heaven in the Blessed Mother's arms. My heart overflows with love for you as it also aches with grief as I already miss you so much and long to hold you in my arms once again. I know I will be able to do that again when I get to Heaven. Rest in peace sweet baby boy....I love you <3

Thank you ever so much
Dear Jo  This is the best idea and beautiful way to show how our angels are all together.That is so comforting to me.They now all have a place to hang around down here.The heartache in losing a loved one is so unbearable at times,yet we go on somehow.I believe it's things like this that memorialize our children that helps us make it through another day.They are always in our hearts and it is nice to know that they are always in other's hearts as well.Thank you so much for your thoughtfullness in adding Nicky to your beautiful Leah's Garden.It is especially wonderful that the rocks were taken from where Leah was baptized. How fitting! Love and God Bless you and Leah's family.

You are one of a kind JoAnn!
This is such a beautiful idea. JoAnn you are such a speacil person, you always think of everyone but yourself. Thank you for thinking not only of beautiful Leah, your precious neice, but for thinking of all her Angel friends.  You mentioned making one for my dad.  Thank you, that was a very sweet gesture. But JoAnn I dont know where you find the time in the day to do all the projects you are involved in. That was very sweet of you to mention him but you probably have a lot of angel rocks you are already working on. But if you do get caught up,  Larry Mikels 1946--2005.  Thank you JoAnn.  Your friend always,  Larissa

Thank you!

Dear Jo, this is such a beautiful and unique (just like your precious Leah) labor of love. Thank you so much for Jamie~leigh's rock. It brought tears to my eyes... tears of loss and of love. Thank you for remembering...

Looking forward to more updates and pics.

Lots of love and gentle hugs, my friend.


Judy, Jamie~leigh's Mama forever

Aunt Jo,

What a special way to honor your Angel Leah's memory and life. I would also like to do something like this, but it will be a few years down the road. I plan on moving closer to my granddaughter and Adam, my Angel son. He is about 1.5 hours drive from me. I would be honored if you could include Adam Michael Hill to your garden for our Angels. Are you making any progress on it yet? Keep us posted. Look forward to pictures.

Love and hugs,

Joann, one of the best people I know.
My Dad would love if you could do one with Donna Marie Williams and James McArthur Williams, you know who they are and it would mean the world to me if you could do that for me Joann I'm so sorry that your family is going through this, Leah was a beautiful person inside and out.
