Top 10 Memorial Ideas for Remembering a Loved One
Creating a memorial for a loved one helps many people deal with grief in an active manner. Here are 10 ideas for an uplifting tribute to the precious life of the one lost.
1. Plant a tree
A long living, shade tree will ensure that your memorial will provide joy for many years. A dedication plaque can be placed near the tree. The tree can be planted on private property, or search the internet for local programs that will plant your memorial tree in a public place.
2. Get a park bench
The bench can be at a park, sidewalk, or other public area. An inscription on the back of the seat lists the name
of the person to whom the memorial is dedicated.
Further attach a 2D barcode which, if scanned using a smart phone, will automatically download the memorial
website of the person in whose honor the bench was dedicated.
3. Name a star
Many websites offer the chance to name a star in the sky after a loved one. You should get a certificate showing where the star is located and the name.
4. Create a charity
Create a charity in their name to fund whatever their passion or mission was in life.
5. Make a memorial webpage
This is an easy way to post photos and memories. Create it to allow others to comment and share memories.
6. Plan a reunion
If your family doesn't already have a reunion, plan one in honor of the deceased. Try to make it an annual event.
7. Make a donation
Make a donation in your loved one's name.
8. Write a book
Include stories, photos and other mementos. Have others also contribute stories about the loved one. Self publishing websites will help you get your book created.
