In the profundities of our pain, we start to memorialize the one we cherished. Making burial service arrangements, outlining tributes, composing melodies, and sharing photos and recollections offer us some assistance with holding on to what we jar of the one we’ve lost and the life we imparted to them. Graveyards house the endeavors to make changeless what was transient: recollections of the individuals who touched the lives of others. The craving to keep a friend or family member alive in memory is reflected in naming establishments, laws, parks, structures, youngsters and grandchildren after somebody.
By having our friends and family recalled that, we guarantee that the piece of ourselves that is weaved with them proceeds on. In safeguarding the ones with whom we shared life, we secure the segments of our personality we owe to them. Should they be overlooked, some of who we are is at danger of being lost, as well. The uprightness of our self is in danger when we consider their presence getting to be lost even to memory. For whatever length of time that they are being recalled that, they keep on existing, if just in our mindfulness.

Eventually, the push to propagate the memory of our friends and family can’t be totally fulfilling, on the grounds that no level of depiction in words, pictures or music can catch the quintessence of the individual we cherished.
The acknowledgment of the pointlessness of attempting to develop the memory of friends and family past the individuals who knew them is recognized in the Eastern Catholic and Orthodox memorial service supplication to God “вічная пам’ять” or “unceasing memory.” Entrusting the cherished one to God’s Memory guarantees impeccable recognition past our lifetime.
It is a substantial weight to manage the obligation regarding safeguarding the memory of the one we adored into an inconclusive future past our own life. Sharing the memory liberates us to give back our thoughtfulness regarding the living and to start living in a world without their physical vicinity.
We request to God “We Remember Them” communicates the conviction that the souls of our friends and family live on through the individuals who recall that them in all times and circumstances: “When we are tired and needing quality, we recollect that them… When we have delights we long to share, we recollect that them.” By stretching out life to them in recognition, we are allowed to survive and past our misery: “the length of we live, they too should live, for they are currently a piece of us, as we recall.
