Honoring a loved one year round

The holidays are a time of celebration, seeing loved ones, making memories and remembering those who are no longer with us. Some people only honor their loved ones during special holidays, and that is okay. But, some people enjoy honoring their loved ones all year round, and one family in Sun City West, Arizona, has done just that.

The daughter of a vintage car buff and a member of the Automotive Restoration Club (ARC) in Sun City West wanted to do something unique to honor her father’s legacy. A few months ago, the ARC began construction on a new building for their organization. Since her father was a founding member of the club, it was only fitting to dedicate their new building in his honor. And, to showcase this dedication, she asked Trigard Memorials to handcraft a beautiful bronze plaque with a picture of her father to be displayed at the new building.

Now his legacy will live on, and people will be reminded of his many contributions to not only the ARC but to the Sun City West community. The plaque will be a constant reminder of happy times and it will show everyone who walks through the auto club’s doors the great respect and love she has for her father. It might be a small gesture, but it carries a huge impact.

We love hearing stories like this. Do you have a story about a special plaque a family you have served placed somewhere special? Tell us about it by emailing marketing@trigard.com.
