“These three children have united all of us as a community as we all have mourned their tragic deaths,” said Mayor William Capote.

“We join the families in wanting to keep their memories alive and to remember the joy these sweet and innocent children brought to so many. Angels’ Field is our way of saying to Lacey, Phillip and Christopher that you are loved and will always be remembered.”

Palm Bay West Little League will also be participating in the ceremony.

Stanley Swist, the grandfather of baby Christopher brought the “Angels’ Field” idea to the mayor shortly after the homicides occurred.
