Memorial bricks dedicated in Lawton

LAWTON, Okla._Local families who have lost a child dedicated special bricks in their honor at Elmer Thomas Park Saturday night.

Nineteen new memorial bricks were added to the Children Memorial garden. Speakers read poetry and sang songs about grief as part of the ceremony. The event was put on by The Compassionate Friends, a support organization for families that have experienced “the death of a child, at any age, from any cause."

The group meets the first Thursday of each month at Lawton First Church of the Nazarene, near Northwest Arlington and 14th Street.
