It‘s all About the DashInspired by the book Soul Cravings, written by Erwin McManus Have you ever taken a walk through a cemetery? I know, many of you will think that, that’s not their first choice of a destination to go for a walk. Well, if you have, you probably enjoyed looking at the different monuments and of course the dates. You begin to ponder on what their life was like. You will see the year they were born ”dash”, death year: You start to contemplate about the years they lived, the DASH years, what they must have seen and done during that time. What were they like (personality)? What did they like to do? Did they accomplish what they wanted in their lifetime? The point is, if you did not know the person on a personal level, you’ll never know them. This is a perfect way to memorialize this person. Imagine having a loved one remembered for what they were like, what they accomplished, what they enjoyed, their family, character/personality, and the list goes on. Think of how you remembered that person. You will want others to know what they were all about. To memorialize someone is to show your love for them. When you take your time in picking out the memorial and/or online to personalize an everlasting memory, others will be able to feel this love you have for this individual. You will have opportunity to honor them the way you see fit. You can tell of those “dash” years in your words. Others who knew of them will see the kind of person they were and if they have any memories of the individual, they will have the opportunity to add to the memorial. You can create their life history in a matter of words and pictures.
