Making a Memorial Garden

January 10, 2005

Painted rock in memory of deceased son.Our son died in October and we made a small sitting area with a small maple tree, rock, monkey grass, and ceramics he had in his yard that we brought home. I painted a rock with a sweet saying in his memory - my first effort using acrylic paint and got instructions off the web. I plan to paint more.

Losing a loved one is never easy. For those of us left behind, creating a living tribute in the form of a memorial garden offers us a place to grieve, reflect, and pay homage to our loved one's memory.

If you have a special person or pet you want to honor or remember, here is a design that I did in my garden. I made a heart design and a tear design by digging up the grass and making a flower garden and a shrub garden to honor someone special.

My husband lost both his parents this year and we are not able to go visit their graves. So we made a Memory Garden for them.

After my 30 year old son and his 29 year old wife died a week apart, I felt like I was shrouded in death. The next spring, I decided to surround myself with life.

When a loved one passes on and the family receives plants. Think of making a "Memory Garden" with them. I lost my dad in 1980 and my sister in 1998 and nine months later my mom in 1999.
