You Can Make A Special Tribute to Your Loved One
Often it does not seem enough to hold fond memories of a loved one who has passed away. You may want to do more to honor his memory. If this is a thought you have in mind, you can make a special tribute to your loved one which will continue on for years to come.
One lovely way to honor him is to make a contribution in his name to a special charity. This can be even more significant if the particular charity was meaningful to him. You will not only be helping others with your thoughtfulness, you will be creating a lasting tribute to your family member.
Setting up a scholarship fund is another wonderful option. While this is an excellent method in most situations, if your loved one had a personal connection to a school, an academic area, or a sport, it is a tribute which can last forever. The recipients of the scholarships will not only appreciate it, but will gain personal knowledge of how important your loved one has been in your life.
A memorial brick, plaque, or bench is another idea. When one of these engraved or embossed objects is placed at a location which has been meaningful to your loved one, his connection to that place will continue. When other people see it, they will know that it is honoring someone very special.
These are only a few ideas of how you can make a special tribute to your loved one. When you think about him, you may come up with other ideas as well. A lasting tribute will keep his memory alive in many ways. He will have a profound connection with people whom he never knew. You will know that you have made a decision to make his memory even more personal.
You will also have the peace of mind of knowing that you have done one of the most significant things you could do. You may wish to consult with other family members or friends for ideas about a memorial tribute. Everyone can share in the special memory of the person who has had a special place in your life.
