Memento Instructions: For those who would like to bring mementos, we ask that you bring flat, one-dimensional items, such as pictures, cards, notes, etc. that can easily be clipped onto the ribbons. When we are open, we are staffed, so your items will be monitored during the day and safely locked after hours. Additionally you may come back to collect any original items that you place on the altar, but do consider making copies of any printed/written material and/or pictures, just for peace of mind.
