Graveside Memory Jar

I made a "Memory Jar" to sit on my son's grave. It is made of a glass jar with weatherproof pop-top. I painted "Chad's Memory Jar" on the outside. I put a stack of 3x3 inch blank paper inside with a pen. I tied a nice ribbon around the neck of the jar and tied the jar to the gravestone. Now when friends and family visit, they can put their memories of him inside.

Fantastic idea. Thanks for sharing. I'm going to put one on my son's gravesite also. And, by the way, my son's name is Chad also.
