Our Memories


We live on in the memories of those who have known us. We live on in a joke, a turn of phrase, a gesture unconciously adopted.

In the past people have also made material memorials to keep those memories fresh. These range from photographs to gravestones to massive monuments such as the Taj Mahal.


In the present the dead might be remembered in a bunch of flowers taped to a lamp-post, or a plaque on a bench in a special place.


This is a ‘Ghost Bike’; painted white and placed on the streets of Manchester tribute to Josh Phillips who died after a bike accident in 2006.

Some people choose what legacy they leave; like David Tasma who was the first person to donate to help St Christopher’s Hospice, and the modern day Hospice Movement come into being.
