One of the saddest ordeals in life for a military family is receiving the news that their loved one has perished. While serving one’s country is an honorable act, losing a loved one is the most difficult experience anyone will ever go through.
This is just one of many the reasons why garden stones are so popular. Resembling a miniature tombstone, they are small enough to place in your garden or yard without drawing too much attention, yet hold the same sentiment as a tombstone. Garden stones are a touching way to create a memorial for a lost loved one in the privacy of your own yard, allowing you to be able to mourn in your own way.
Perhaps nothing is as touching as creating a memorial spot or planting a plant, tree or entire garden in honor of a lost loved one. Garden stones can be customized for all branches of the military- Air Force, Navy, Coast Guard, Marines, Army- and can be as elaborate or as simple as you wish. Some people prefer to have their loved one’s photo printed on their stone; others would rather have a favorite quote or symbol that reminds them of their beloved etched into the stone.
Garden stones are a lovely way to pay your respects for those lost while serving their country, and help us to never forget the sacrifice they made for our freedoms.
