One day as I was driving through a desolate area of Jones County, my eyes caught a glimpse of a white cross with faded orange flowers beside the road. Like most people I had seen these road-side memorials before and like most people they only, slightly, register in my memory as I go speeding by. But, on this occasion I stopped. For thirteen years someone has continued to place flowers at this simple memorial to a loved one. At that moment I felt a connection to that family in their loss.

Conventional thought would ask, “Why would anyone want to remember the place where you lost a loved one?.” These road-side memorials serve, not to remember the event, but to remember the person. They keep alive the memory of the one they love.
