Its a wonderful tribute to your family that you hang an ornament for them as it makes them forever a part of your Christmas celebrations. Here in Blenheim we have a memory tree in the middle of a mall where we can place a bauble for people we have lost. It started about 5 years ago - last year they needed two trees and this year they expect to need 4 trees to hang all the baubles. Its good to know that even though they have died - they remain in the hearts and minds of family and friends even at the busiest time of the year.
