The Silent Angel Memorial was founded in 2002 by Ms. Bildman following the loss of her son and is an annual tribute to the individuals in St. Mary's County who have fallen victim to acts of homicide.

During the annual ceremony, ornaments are placed on a Christmas Tree and the names of

St. Mary’s County homicide victims are announced. Each ornament displays the name, date of birth, and the date each victim became a “silent angel.” Following the ceremony, the decorated tree will be placed in the lobby of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office until the first week of January.
