Monuments and Memorials
Memory is essential to leading an authentically human life.
Without remembering, we lose our history, our identity, and our sense of where we come from and where we are going.
We feel deeply the need to remember loved ones, events, heroes, tragedies, and much more.
The monuments and memorials we place in our homes, yards, cemeteries, and public
places are signs of our commitment to honor the memory of those who have gone before us.
We remember our loved ones; we remember those who are otherwise no longer remembered.
Statues of Jesus, Mary, angels, the saints, and other sacred symbols are one tangible way to say that we remember, we honor, we believe.
