Triple Word Score

Sometimes it's nice to be reminded of just how personal and meaningful a memorial can be if we think creatively and listen. This monument reminds me of a service we did for a teacher. His family mentioned that there was an equation that he always reminded his students of, so we brought in a blackboard and wrote the equation in chalk for the service. We also made a sign that looked like the blackboard for the registration area. I was out at the cemetery months later for another service and saw that they incorporated the blackboard and equation on his monument. That teacher and his equation are not forgotten.
