TOLEDO, Ohio — The Toledo Children's Memorial in west Toledo is looking for the next person to continue its legacy.

Over the years the memorial has been the site of many vigils and remembrances of children who have lost their lives. In recent years however, the small memorial has fallen into disrepair.

Daniel Cole, who founded the memorial and currently takes care of it, is no longer getting the help needed to maintain it, which is why he would like to donate it to someone who can help keep it going.

"It could really be beautiful. And that's why I really want to see someone, a corporation, a church," said Cole.

You can call Cole at his office number at 419-476-4248 if you are interested.
