More than 120 "little angles' were recognized Tuesday at the second annual Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day in Fayetteville, October 15th has been recognized annually since 2002. More than a dozen parents attended the candlelight ceremony held at the home of Cindy Chamberlain, she lost her daughter nearly five years ago. Chamberlain says this event makes it easier for her and others to deal with the grief from the loss.
