The passing on of a loved one is perhaps the most painful time of anyone’s life. While accepting their death and talking about it to a trusted person is the first step of grieving, another thing that might help is leaving behind your loved one’s legacy.
You can do this by capturing their memory on a monument. But what should you write on it? What is it that must be engraved on the monument forever? What is it that people should read and remember them by? Here are a few things you can think about that may help you decide:
- What is it about them that you loved the most?
- What did they do that made a difference to the lives of the people they touched?
- What was the fondest memory of their life that they shared with you?
- What was it that made them happiest?
- Whom did they love the most? For example, their kids, husband/wife, parents.
- How did they wish to be remembered? (this could be your biggest pointer)
- What was your fondest memory with them?
- What did they love doing the most? For example, painting, reading, pottery.
Thinking about these questions might bring back a flood of memories, and it would take some time to process and work through all of them. But when you do, you might just know what it is that the world will remember your loved one by. In the process, you might also be able to appreciate the life they lived and come a step closer to accept their passing on.You may even choose to engrave a picture or install a porcelain portrait along with text, especially if you want their legacy to be more visual and creative.
