I want to do a book on the crosses we see each day, going to work or shoping. I need the names, places and the story of the people the cross or marker represents along with a picture of the marker. This is my way of giving honor to them and the life they lead. I am hoping to work with the Kentucky Dept. of Safety to publish this book.

please let me know if you want to be a part of this project and I will give you a address to send the information and picture. Lets all remember them.

thanks,

The cross that is located on the levee on highway 41-A right outside of Providence. Young folks need to look at that cross and ask questions concerning why it is there.
Jason was too caught up in living a high n mighty playboy lifestyle and he had been warned numerous times that he was living too fast and need to slow down unless something bad would happen to him. He didnt listen and now there is a cross on the side of the road with his name on it and also cold hard tomb stone in a cemetary with his name on it.

What does that have to do with this person wanting information to write a book in memoriam of the people killed in this area? People drive recklessly everyday, including myself at times, but that doesn't make me think that any of them deserves to die in a horrible crash! And his parents didn't deserve to have to go through any of that either! Keep your ignorant comments about the people who have died due to terrible accidents to yourself. I don't think this person was asking for your negative opinions of how they were asking for it. Ignorance abounds on these forums, it is truly mind boggling.

In Florida it has become a big nuisance to have crosses and flowers on the county right of way. It is illegal to do that on someone's property (county) They have stopped it..Now the mowers can continue cutting grass, and it's not a distraction to motorists. Crosses and names belong in a cemetery, that is DIGNITY, not on the side of a road.

People do this to memorialize their deceased loved ones. I really don't see how doing this is undignified. I can however agree that this must be a pain to county work crews trying to mow. I don't know if that has ever been an issue here.

I think the crosses are ok but the people who place them there should do the upkeep so many feet around them like outside of diamond these people do a great job
