Top 5 Ways To Create A Memorial Of A
Person You Lost
By Mary P. James
Hi everyone! For this article, I am going to talk a bit
about memorial ideas, specifically, ways you can create
a memorial for someone you lost. Losing someone can be
very difficult, it is something I have went through, and
everyone goes through the loss of a loved one at some
point in their lives. After the funeral, many people
wonder how else they can go about remembering their
loved ones. Through this article, I am going to present
my list of 5 ways that you can create a memorial for
someone you have lost. So let's get right to the list!
1. Plant A Tree!
This is a common idea, and it is a good one. Why not
plan a tree in memorial of the person that you have
lost? You can find a lot of information on the internet
about planting trees. If you decide on this idea, you
just need to figure out where you would like to plant
the tree. Planting it in your own backyard is the most
common idea, as it keeps the memorial site close to you.
2. Donate A Bench!
Why not donate some type of property in memorial of the
person you lost? You could donate to a bench to your
loved ones favorite park, or you could buy a brick at a
local park, zoo, etc. Ask yourself, what was your loved
ones favorite places to go? This will give you a good
start on where you could make a donation of property in
honor of your loved one.
3. Create a DVD!
This is another popular idea. If you have photos and
videos of your loved one, you could turn it into a
memorial DVD and play it at family gatherings. This is a
great way to remember your loved one, and it's also a
very emotional way of remembering them.
4. Create A Web Site
Another great way of remembering your loved one is
making a website for them. If you don't know how to
create a website, there are numerous websites that offer
the option of allowing you to easily create a memorial
website. Through this website you could upload pictures,
videos, stories. This is especially a great way to
remember a loved one as family all over the country can
access the website. In addition, you can make the
website public so that any person in general can come
across it. Even strangers can then come to understand
just how amazing your loved one was.
5. Keep A Journal!
This is a really good way of dealing with your emotions
with your loved ones lost. You can create a journal and
write all of your thoughts about your loved one. It is
really good to get your emotions out. In addition, you
can know that your loved ones are reading your thoughts
and knowing just how much you miss them.
I hope you enjoyed these ideas. Losing a loved one is
very difficult, but creating a memorial for them is a
really great idea. Hopefully this article will have
given you some ideas. Good luck with your memorial! I'm
sure your loved one would be proud.
