Leaving a Colorful Memory
Southeast District

When stones are left at graves, it says, "I wish you were here” and “I remember you”. This program helps express loss, love, and spirituality, while promoting creativity and sisterhood bonding. This program was held at the 2019 Southeast District Area Day. Sisterhood members learned the origin of the ritual, painted stones and shared their memories of their loved ones, and gave the stones to local cemeteries for visitors to use.
