Driving 30 t0 40000 miles a year I have seen hundreds of Crosses along the highways depicting a location that an unfortunate individual met his demise. Over the years I have tossed a Hail Mary to them out of respect and have gotten to know many of them by their first names as I pass them many times.
I have come to know David, Noland, Sarah, Michael, Peter, and Stephany and as I pass them I suggest they find my loved ones and show them the ropes in the Heavenly Garden.
Just was interested if you say a little prayer for them and if not would not it be a wonderful thing to do?
Have a great day and God love
Personally don't like to the crosses or make shift memorials all over the highways. My Mother died in her own home, but there is not memorial erected on her behalf. She is in the cemetary. What about all the people that have been killed in mall shootings, are memorials erected for them. Better yet, what about all of our military men and women that have been killed in wars all over the world, etc, etc. All of these people will be remembered, no memorial is required. I do not say anything when I see these make shift memorials. The people they represent are no where in site. I do think it is sad and terrible that they probably died in a car accident, but I see no diffence in them and some one I see in the newspaper that has died.
