Our “Born Asleep” Sculpture is now in place at St. Michael’s cemetery in Dumfries. It was made by local artist Lynda Burns from Dalbeattie. It has been a few months in the making but well worth waiting for. Its beautiful and will hopefully bring comfort to bereaved parents when visiting the cemetery.
Lynda managed to find Dalbeattie builder Michael Gafney and son to build the enclosing wall from Sandstone and all for no charge for his labour and materials.
Provost Jack Groom is opening the memorial on Monday 12th March at 2pm at St. Michaels, all friends of Sands are invited to attend.
