Roadside Tribute is a place for you to share your memories about the loved ones you have lost to accidents. It is brought to you by Kallos Designs, LLC in Winona Lake, Indiana.
How it Came About
The site was inspired by Jim Hill’s work in creating ornamental metal signs. After driving by numerous roadside tribute sites and seeing how so many had broken down and faded over time, Jim had the idea of creating a longer lasting memorial for each of these sites. He began taking pictures of the tribute site with his smart phone which also tagged each picture with the geographical coordinates of each location. This eventually led to a multi-year project to create the site.
Our Goals: Long Term Preservation of Memories and Help to Those Who are Grieving
Our goal is to help those who are grieving and also to provide a long term means to preserve the memories of those lost in roadside accidents. Physical tribute sites are a great way to remember family members and friends who died in accidents, but due to their very nature of being outside in the weather they tend to degrade over time. Photographing the tribute site and posting them here provides an easy (and free) way to preserve the tribute site online.
Virtual Roadside Tribute Sites:
Some who have lost loved ones would like to remember the accident site but have not yet built a physical roadside tribute site. This web site provides a way to create a virtual roadside tribute to honor the memories of loved ones lost in accidents without actually erecting a physical site.
