Garden of Innocence/Fresno-2

This beautiful garden was created by Elaine Tosh, the Manager of Mountain View Cemetery in Fresno, CA.  Elaine could not do enough to make the babies resting place the most beautiful.  As soon as she heard about Garden of Innocence and offered a spot for us there, she went to work designing and building the perfect place.
