CLARKSVILLE, IN (WAVE) - A special event was held to celebrate a book about three angels.

Lily Badger, 9, and her 7-year-old twin sisters Sara and Grace, along with their grandparents, died in a fire on December 25, 2011 while on holiday in New York.

Monday at Greentree Mall a launch party was held for a book titled Find Your Magic which celebrates the lives of the three little girls with a zest for life.

The author is a friend of the family, Sandra Payne, who said, "The book was an offering to the family. The father of the little girls who died formed the lillysaragrace fund, which donates money to arts program in under funded schools across the country."

The illustrator of the book, Nancy Goodpaster, explained, "Each one had their own personality, I met Morgan today (Monday) for the first time and I was quite surprised how close she came to the character."

The girls' father formed www.lilysarahgracefund.org in memory of his daughters, which funds arts projects for little ones in under funded public elementary schools across America. All of the proceeds from the book will go to the fund.
