I came across this floral display on my walk through a local park and felt pulled in to take a closer look. I saw that in the centre of the table was a plaque in honour of a gentleman named Tony V. Born November 15, 1936 deceased November 1, 2016. Along with his name, date of birth and death, it stated he was a loving Husband, Father & Gramps with the last line reading “Memories are forever”. What a loving tribute.
Many of our parks give opportunity to donate a bench or table in memory of a loved one who has passed. It may be in a favourite park or trail or at a viewpoint that was special and holds a treasured memory, giving those close to the deceased a place to sit and remember. I think it’s a beautiful gesture as were these flowers undisturbed and honoured by those who passed by.
