The act of creating a memorial for one who has passed away is an act of spirituality. A memorial tells the world that Marco may be gone, but his spirit lives on. A memorial makes a statement that Marco will forever be tied together in the circle of life. A memorial is a statement that Marco's life mattered & continues to matter. The acts of goodness & courage will never be forgotten. A memorial is a way to remember a loved one forever.

Seal of Honour...
The night before the burial of her husband 2nd Lt. James Cathey of the United States
Marine Corps, killed in Iraq, Katherine Cathey refused to leave the
casket, asking to sleep next to his body for the last time. The Marines
made a bed for her, tucking in the sheets below the flag. Before she
fell asleep, she opened her laptop computer and played songs that
reminded her of "Cat", and one of the Marines asked if she wanted them
to continue standing watch as she slept. " I think it would be kind of nice if you kept doing it" she said. " I think that's what he would have wanted".
