Christmas Tree Decoration at Sheriff's Office

AUGUSTA, GA (LT. Calvin J. Chew) - The Angel Hearts Support Group will be decorating a Christmas Tree at the Sheriff’s Office in honor of lost loved ones.  The decorating ceremony will take place at 5:30pm on Thursday, December 5, 2013 and the media is invited to attend.

The death of a loved one is never easy however the death of your child is extremely difficult to deal with.  When a child is murdered, the anger, frustration, pain and grief are intensified by the realization that another person intentionally took the life of your child.

The family's trauma is worsened by many of the necessary intrusions into their grief in order to obtain the necessary evidence and testimony by the Police and judicial system.  The media will often focus upon the victim without consent from the family.  When a suspect is apprehended, preliminary hearings, postponements, trials and sentencing all force grieving families to face what may seem to be a lack of justice.  In situations where the murder is unsolved or justice is otherwise compromised, there is even greater pain and confusion as there is no closure.

When the aforementioned takes place in the CSRA, this is where the newly formed Angel Hearts Support Group steps in to help.  Holidays can be an especially troubling time; this event will allow loved ones to honor those they have lost to violent incidents.

This will be held at the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office, 400 Walton Way, Augusta, Georgia.
