Makeshift Memorials

Watching the news tonight it was mentioned that many people are leaving teddy bears in memoriam to Caylee Anthony.

I said to my husband, “I hope someone is gathering them up before the weather gets to them and gives them to a local hospital.”

Have you seen those roadside memorials with stuffed animals that have been ruined by the weather?

It does the dead person no good. It could do a live person a lot of good.

Please, if you feel you need to memorialize someone, give the stuffed animal to a local hospital to give to one of their patients in the name of the person you want to remember.

The hospital knows which patients need a lift. The elderly patient with no visitors, the child who could use every bit of love he can get…

This type of gift could make the difference and could help a patient get better faster.
