William’s Wings will host the 2nd annual Angel of Hope vigil on December 6th at 7PM.
In the spring of 2015, William’s Wings Foundation which is a local non-profit based in Chanhassen donated an Angel of Hope statue to the City of Chanhassen. The statue, along with approximately 150 other Angel of Hope statues around the country are viewed as a place of mourning and to serve as a beacon of hope for families grieving the loss of a child. The statue is located along Santa Vera Dr., between Kerber Blvd. & Powers Blvd. Each year, on December 6th at 7pm there is a vigil at all statues for families to remember, grieve and heal. Attendees are welcome to place a white flower at the base of the statue to remember a loved one.
William’s Wings Foundation was established in 2013 by Todd & Misty Luecke of Chanhassen as a way to honor their son, William and establish a means to help other grieving families. The primary goal for the foundation is to provide hope, healing, help, and hopefully smiles again to all families grieving the loss of a child.
William Douglas Luecke, the perfect blessing from God, was born June 10, 2011 to Todd and Misty Luecke of Chanhassen. William gained his heavenly wings on February 27, 2012 when he passed away peacefully in his sleep.
