With the sadness of 'our' Sharon's recent passing, I'm wondering about including an in memoriam forum, which could simply have a thread for each NGA member's passing with the date and cause of death (if appropriate) as a place to 'gather' for sharing memories, date/time of services, photographs, a link to the member's profile, etc. The Sandbox seems too frivolous, and no other forum really fits either. I would suggest (if possible) only allowing an admin to start a thread and to limit each passing member to one thread. Many of us have established full and lasting cyber-relationships with folks from all around the world, some we've actually met, others not. I realize this falls somewhat beyond 'gardening' but it would seem to be a respectful tribute to long time garden members. ?

I was wondering what to do with Sharon's thread once it slowed down enough to seem to be ready to be "archived". A like the idea of having a special forum for archiving these kinds of things.

@plantladylin has it. I agree
It could be the "Memory Garden Forum" with one thread devoted to each of our friends who may be gone but will never be forgotten. Thumbs up

"Memory Garden" is the DG name for that forum. It might be better to choose another name.

I guess I don't see a conflict with using the same name as DG. But perhaps we can barn-storm something different? Memorial Gardens. In Remembrance of. Fondly Remembering.

Jump in.

DG might see a conflict and start leveling charges of plagiarism or intellectual property theft. Glare

Memorial Garden sounds good, or Garden of Memories.

Oh, I like "Garden of Memories"! We sure don't want the same name as something on DG. I didn't remember a memory garden there but I like Garden of Memories better anyway! Smiling
