there it is, right in front of you.
“home is where your people are.”
― richie norton
sugarbush park, ann arbor, mi, usa
“welcome and be my guest”
just a sampling of memorials found all over the parks
on benches, stones, trees and shelters
each very personal
“to celebrate the joy he found in the outdoors and his pleasure in sharing it with others.” (for the creator of the ann arbor public schools outdoor education program)
shelter to rest and enjoy the beauty –
dedicated to a young woman who loved to be in nature
and left the world way too early.
“her generosity has ensured that ann arbor will remain a city of trees.”
“only when you drink from the river of silence shall you sing, and when you reach the mountain top you shall begin to climb, and when the earth shall claim your limbs, then you shall truly dance.”
“placed in honor by his park employees”
“a guiding light to all who knew her.”
“he loved to walk here.”
“a caring and generous man…”
died on september 11, 2001 in nyc
in loving memory
“every memorial in its time has a different goal.”
