Remembering Those That Have Touched Your Life

Written by Jimmy Rustling

When you lose someone close to you, or someone that has touched your life, it can be hard to know what to do, and how to feel. You may have lots of overwhelming feelings to deal with, and at the same time, you may have lots of memories you want to share with others. When it comes to remembering those that have touched your life, what must you consider?

Showing Respect

No matter how a person has been in your life or touched your life, you need to remember that respect is important. Respecting a person’s (or loved ones) wishes is crucial. If you are not showing respect, then you are not valuing who they are, and what they had to offer your life. Respect can show itself in many ways, but always taking the time to communicate with others, being empathetic, and expressing your feelings and emotions will be important when it comes to remembering and sharing those who are no longer with you anymore.

Telling a Story

Those that have touched your life need to be close to you, and they need to be in your presence whenever possible. You can make this happen by looking at metal urns at, and by keeping them close to your home, and close to your heart. When you have a decorative, unique, and handmade urn in your home that safely holds those that have touched your life, you can then tell many stories about what impact they had, and how they enhanced your life. With an urn, you can be sure that they can be part of all your future stories too.

Planting a Memorial Garden

You want to share your connection with others around you, and you can do this by planting a memorial garden. Fill a garden or outdoor space in a community area with plants, trees, and fruit varieties that you enjoy looking at, and that bring all-year color. A memorial garden can hello you spread how you felt about someone, and how they felt about you too. It could also help others that are in the process of grieving. When you are looking at planting a memorial garden, think about what plants will be easy to care for, and easy to maintain, as this will ensure a space always looks good.

Raising Funds for Others

Those loved ones or relationships that have entered your life, and left, can be remembered with the funds you raise for other organizations and non-profits. Nothing is stopping you from raising all-important funds, by holding charity drives for those organizations and NGOs that mean something to you, or to someone that you have lost. When you can share the connection and love that you have had with others, you can also aim to have a positive influence too. When you are looking at raising funds for others, carefully think about how you will go about this, and how you can get other people involved too.
