My idea for a memorial is to incorporate nature for an ever-changing visual
that is never the same. Take the skeleton structure (or built one if that is impossible) and hang prism crystals inside each "window." When the sunshine hits the prisms, beautiful rainbows will scatter and dance on the surrounding area and even on the people's clothes who are there reflecting. The white snow will become an eternal rainbow blanket in the wintertime. The whole idea is that something good is always left behind in tragedy. Rainbows are left to us after an awful storm and memories are left to us after death. The happy feel-good rainbow prisms are symbolism of the happy memories for those who are left grieving. Perhaps music could even be playing softly... "Reflections of My Life" or "Imagine" or a waterfall fountain peacefully flowing for a comforting audio to compliment the calming visual. Thank you for listening.
