Have your say
All as i can say is i hope you never lose a relative or a loved one to a tragic car accident Michelle Hutton.For some families it is more than just a tribute to owe they have lost, it is also acceptance as to who they have lost.
Very selfish attutude michelle hunton,people do not always die in a bed,if they are killed horrifically on a roadside or on the road is the pain of the bereaved the same as someone who died in a bed ,i don't think so,everybody is different,some take a long time to heal and some never heal from a loss,as any councillor will say everybody is different and they all heal in their own way and their own time,who are we to tell them when to stop,besides how many people see these tributes and slow down because they know what it means,how many lives has that saved.Why do you regard a tribute as "clutter".
My mam died in the West Cumberland Hospital. I am not allowed to lay tributes next to the bed she died in so why do people think it is alright to clutter the roadside with flowers and teddy bears?
