Bedford Memory Tree
The memory Tree was conceptualized by the committee for Celebrate Bedford. This committee was founded by combination of people who live and/or work in Bedford Township, and is meant to serve the families of this community - specifically those families who have lost a child.
About the Memory Tree
The purpose of the Memory Tree is to provide a place of quiet contemplation for family members and friends of the young people who have passed away in their youth - a place where loved ones can peacefully reflect on the memory of the person they have lost. The Tree represents the community's support of our grieving families.
The Bedford Memory Tree will soon be planted on Bedford Township property at the Bedford Branch Library in the children's garden. This garden is maintained by the Bedford Beautification committee.
To apply for a leaf to be engraved, you must be an immediate family member of the deceased person. You and the person to be memorialized must currently be, or have been, part of Bedford Township. The person to be memorialized must have been under the age of 25 when they passed away.
There will only be one leaf per person.
