TREE OF ANGELS



          We, the comrades of Unit 1012: The VFFDP, endorses this memorable tradition known as the Tree of Angels. Just like we remember victims on the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims every year on September 25, we will also remember the victims on the Tree of Angels event, even though not everyone of us is not from Texas.

            We will post information about this tradition from several links:


Adorned Tree of Angels

Austin, Texas - (1991) a memorable tradition was initiated by Verna Lee Carr, State Director of People Against Violent Crime (PAVC). Working as a volunteer victim advocate, it was very obvious that the holiday season was especially difficult for victims/victims' families. PAVC wanted to do something very special for these victims, so the organization began the tradition of having a statewide "Tree of Angels" ceremony that would honor all victims by bringing an Angel to be placed on a special Christmas Tree in hope the blessings of the holiday season would comfort them in the warm spirit it represents.
