The Heartfelt Children's Memorial is located at 115 Hillcrest Dr., Seward, Nebraska.   

As you enter into the memorial, the crooked pathway symbolizes a winding journey parents go through during the grief of their child. 


A Life-tile holographic wall creates a movement of a boy and girl running through a meadow surrounded by a host of butterflies. 

The centerpiece of the memorial are three brick walls which contain the dedicated memorial bricks. Children from communities across Nebraska, other states and internationally are honored on these walls. Every child has a life story to tell and it is our honor to share their stories with visitors.

An abstract metal sculpture, "The Light", is located at the end of the winding journey. As you walk through the sculpture it provides a space for meditation, peace and prayer.

The certified North American Butterfly Association butterfly garden provides a haven for many species of butterflies and other pollinating insects. Butterflies are a meaningful symbol to those who grieve and the garden contributes to our agricultural community.
