Did they say it was because people were offended?



They wouldn't take it down right away, people were just in the grieving period.

That's basically what (whoever it was who is in charge of it...) told my cousin... that it was offending people and they were complaining about it. Now, if it really IS, I don't know. And by the time he got to the site; they were already digging it up... which was a bunch of crap.

Who was digging it up? Workers for the city?

that's what I'm guessing. My mom is the one who told me about it, and I don't think she has all the details... so idk WHAT was going on, or why they suddenly want to remove it.

That's sad I have 3 memorials that are literally within 2 mins of my house because my house if off a bad street. One has been there for years and is a cross w/his picture. And the other 2 are one near the train tracks which is a simple cross and one near the creek where a family lost their lives and there is 4 wooden crosses. No-one has mentioned taking them down and the one has been there for at least 6-7 years no issue and it is on private property but the owner doesn't care that it's there as long as it doesn't collect a bunch of crap.



If anything they remind me to be careful on our roads and to slow down instead of rushing. They don't distract me but give me incentive to take my time and slow down.

Ikr? I've seen SO MANY memorials... why the hell would they say something about a three yr old's memorial but not the others. I don't get it. Is a cross that "bad"? No. They don't distract me either. I'll see em, look for a split second and keep my eyes on the road. People say its a distraction. No, that's an excuse to complain ab something that has nothing to do with them.

Aw that makes it worse seeing a baby's memorial. It isn't the same but the this little girl near my great grandpa's grave...her headstone/memorial make me cry everytime the head stone is huge and it's just so sad :(
I don't think of them as distractions, I think of those things as things to remember and to keep in mind that things can happen in the blink of an eye and to be grateful for the time you do have with your loved ones

With the stuff you spout, why do you wonder why they'd feel that way? :roll:

Maybe, just maybe, they don't lie the memorial because it could cause painful memories to surface. Maybe some of the people driving lost loved ones to car crashes and don't want to be reminded of it.
