Sharing stories and reflecting on a person's life offer opportunities to remember how our loved ones shaped and influenced our lives. Acknowledging the importance of loved ones in our lives is an essential step in the healing process.
Here's a list of simple questions to ask yourself in the process of choosing and creating a memorial:
