Headstones for Loved Ones
Organized by: Headstones for Loved Ones
A grave headstone or monument is often viewed as a sign of respect or fondness to our loved ones. For many, they cannot afford to place a headstone at their loved one's gravesite. They continue to visit the site without having the headstone to view or to offer the family some type of closure. Family members cannot always afford a headstone. In other cases, they do not have loved ones who can help by offering money or donating the headstone. For others, they just cannot handle the financial burden. We already have 3 families waiting to place headstones at their family member's gravesites and know of others.
Taking the Time to Remember the young man from TN who died tragically in a car crash. The family not only endured the pain of the loss, but could not afford to arrange for the funeral because they didn't have the money. They also did not have a headstone to view. Remembering the young man who was riding his bike on the highway without a helmet and was suddenly hit by a truck. His family could not handle the financial burden and rushed to place money jars in all the community local stores. Remembering the female student from NY who was tragically hit by a bus. Her family could not afford the funeral expenses, as the community rushed around to raise the money so that they could bury her. She still lies without a headstone. Remembering the baby that the family prepared to bring home after birth, but instead, the baby died. The family had all of her needs at home, but no money for the funeral or the headstone. They continue to weep as they visit the empty gravesite.
These stories continue to go on in our lifetime and in the future of others. We come across many people who have mentioned that they just could not afford to put a headstone at the gravesite of their loved ones because the money was not there. Others have questioned their decision, while trying to step in to help pay for the headstone, but have too, found it not affordable.
We would like to help others feel complete by donating headstones. Please help us to help others while visiting their family members gravesite. We hope that you can donate to help our cause. Thank you!
