Valley families came together this afternoon to remember those who were taken too soon.

Sunday was the 26th annual Walk to Remember at Terre Haute's Deming Park.
   
Around 100 people came out to pay tribute to babies that die during pregnancy or shortly after birth.
   
It's also a way to  raise awareness to ensure that these families receive the sensitivity they deserve.
   
And with such a long history in the community, those involved say this day is ever-important to help bring those families who have lost children together.

"These babies, even though they may not have walk on this earth, they are still just very important to their parents as their living children. This is an opportunity for them to be with other people that lost their babies and just take an afternoon out to honor that child," said Sue Hoopengarner of Union Hospital.

The walk was hosted by Union Hospital's Bereavement Service Program, for more information on the services they provide click here.
