<p>Last winter I was on a committee that was studying roadside memorials.  Quite often relatives of loved ones killed at a location will continually place flowers, teddy bears, photos, etc.  Usually it becomes unkempt and causes safety concerns with drivers distracted while looking at them.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I put forth an idea and the program is now in full swing.</p>

<p>Neat idea. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>The neighbor boy was killed Thanksgiving weekend.  This is a road that son1 and I ride all the time--actually we had ridden it just hours before the accident.  Students have kept a roadside memorial, but it does become a bit messy.  Plus, it's on a blind curve, NOT a good place for random flowers, etc to be placed.  This type of memorial would be nice.</p>
