A memorial garden for Brian.


Janet, Brian's fiancee, has designed and organized a memorial garden in Brian's name. His friends and co-workers have donated time and resources to make this garden a reality in just a few days.  At the end of the week, after the official service on Saturday, everyone will  share parting thoughts by recording them on wood planks that will become a memorial boardwalk, guiding visitors through the  garden.

Each person can choose a message, can choose a plant, can donate money for amendments or other supplies, can join  the work crew and remember the friend Brian was in his/her life.

The project is designed, organized and coordinated by Janet Lee.

Gorgeous idea, it will be a very special place to sit and feel the love between you and Brian.

I have expressed my love towards your family via some roses.
When I do my Mediumship readings, a rose is shown to me as the symbol of love from the Other Side. xx♥

I've though about you so much in the past few weeks. I just wanted you to know that. I was on a similar journey at this time last summer when my daughter suddenly passed away. That being said, there are no words to express the sorrow that comes with the loss of a child. Just know that I am thinking of you and praying you are surrounded with support.

She Writes said...

You remain in my thoughts as does your family. Thinking of you and wishing you to be comforted.

I will follow the link, and see how the memorial garden is coming along, it sounds like a beautiful and comforting idea... sending you love and wishes from very far away in Africa x
