Bronze Angel Sculpture Installation – Tucson Medical Center Peppi’s Hospice
Our family installed a sculpture to commemorate my beloved mother, who passed at the age of 93 at the Tucson’s Medical Center’s hospice facility in May 2014;  It was a life changing experience. The hospice facility ‘Peppi’s House‘ was amazing. The compassion and love the staff have is remarkable. The artwork there really helped our family during a difficult time.
