The Bench

by David Nurse April. 28, 2020 160 views

In the UK it is very common we see a dedication of a loved one remembered with the donation of a bench in a favoured public spot.

I don't know if this is universal but it seems to me that is it a good place to stop and remember a friend or relative who has passed.

These tributes do seem to attact me on my walks and this one is particularly nice.

I have never seen one before in Canada. Not a bad idea. Not sure for how long they can stand up to the elements as I already see a big crack in this one.

Well, I don't know if it's universal, but I've seen some donated benches in Flanders too. However, they are mostly only decorated with the name of the loved one and the sponsor. The bench in your photo is a very beautiful one compared to these simple ones.
