Am I the only one in the area that thinks writing RIP in glass chalk and stickers all over there cars maybe isn't the best way to honor the dead? I don't understand why people turn their cars into rolling memorials. I'm all for honoring the dead but why on a car? I wouldn't want my name or loved ones name on a car. I feel there's better ways to remember someone other than scribbling their name in glass chalk or getting a tacky sticker made.

Just leave them alone. People handle grief differently. I'm sure you're the perfect person. At least they are bringing honor to others, not bashing them, unlike you. When you lose someone you love, you handle it your way. Leave them alone to grieve.

I see your point. It's pretty morbid to me.

Very distasteful, and I'm a Redneck and have a high tolerance for trashy stuff.

Maybe u never loved any1 so much u were deeply effected by their death. It's a celebration of someone's life.

A car window is a celebration of someone's life? Plant a tree or something.

I have a decal on my car, but its more of a reminder to me to remember how precious life is. It helps me to remember to slow dan, enjoy life and not take it for granted....and to never forget. I had a cousin die of suicide at a young age.

I understand what you mean. I have cancer and dont know how much longer i will be here. I told my daughter, whatever she does, do not put a memorial of my death on her vehicle. I know how much she loves me and i do not need it displayed for everyone to be reminded. While she may be able to deal with seeing it, it may affect others (husband, my brothers, my sisters...etc) differently. I told her to use the money she would spend on the memorial to purchase something for herself that would always be of value. I want my family to remember my life not my death. I think a death should be celebrated but not like that. To each his own though.

Someone commits suicide and I'm the idiot? Right!
