RIVER FALLS (WKOW) -- A mother is building a playground in honor of the three young girls she lost.
To raise money, she's selling their artwork.
Jessica Schaffhausen is auctioning off the work done by her daughters Amara, Sophie and Cecelia.
The girls were killed by Jessica's ex-husband, Aaron Schaffhausen.
Jessica says the playground is a mission that keeps her going every day.
"I try to think if I had been the one to die, I wouldn't want my girls to not keep going. I would want them to be happy and enjoy life and so I try to live the way I would want them to live."
She's calling it the Tri-Angels Playground.
It's designed to be universally accessible for children and adults of all ages.
It's expected to cost $550,000.
