Although the happy times are often forgotten amongst realizations that the deceased will never be seen here on earth again, people must realize that death is a part of natural life. To deal with the purchase of a memorial is not always easy. It is important to keep their memory alive, as a sign of rememberance by those closests to them. A memorial can be as simple as placing a small marker in the grave. In many cases now it involves the creation of a larger headstone for public display. Unfortunately there is little that can be done about this reality. However, memorials can help ease the pain by creating a physical symbol of respect and love for that person who has passed on. Memorials go back in time for many generations. Sometimes just a simple wooden cross, or even a mound of stones were placed on a grave. Even large veteran monuments were made for public display to remind us of the battle that they fought for our country's freedom. Regardless of the reason why, it is part of moving on and yet never forgetting.
