The dedication began with individuals sharing their late loved ones’ stories, prompting hugs between strangers and establishing a connection among the group.

The families then wrote messages to their loved ones on rocks to be placed in the garden. While some featured Bible verses and others were adorned with drawings, they all showcased extensive love for those they commemorated.
