Steven's Story: An Origami Memorial

by Kathy
(Margate, FL, USA)

My nephew Steven passed away suddenly, result of a car accident. He was just two weeks pass his eighteenth birthday.

His death had a huge effect on his high school classmates. Some of them got together and they made a tree of origami cranes. I was told that inside each bird was a special message for Steve by them. The cranes where of multi-color paper and they where so beautiful. They were like Steve.

It was such a lovely display and his mother is able to look at this everyday and remember her son.

My niece is getting married next year and wants to have these as her centerpieces on all her tables. This is in memory of Steven's life and the celebration of her new life.
