Memorialize site


To the Editor:

As a resident of Lochmoor Blvd., I am in favor of a memorial being placed at the site of the July 30, 2001 accident.

I don't think a tree would have the same effect as an actual boulder or small brick wall with a memorial plaque. We are not just remembering the deceased teenagers here, we are also trying to teach a lesson and remind others how costly reckless driving can be on the lives of others.

As residents of Lochmoor, we have had to deal with flowers, balloons, wreaths, candles and flags for a year now. While these are nice temporary reminders of the teenagers, I think a permanent reminder set in stone would be the best memorial.

Maybe three trees could also be planted in memory of the three victims at the sites of their unfortunate landings.

As a mother of three teenagers, I say: Let's not hide behind a tree on this issue build a memorial and let all the kids see it and remember what happened so it doesn't happen again.
