October 2013: Off the Wall

One guy thinks there's a better way to remember our favorite members

I ’ve seen a trend locally that I don’t like, but about which I don’t feel passionate enough to raise a stink. I do feel passionate enough to write about it however, and hopefully stir some loving discussion.

The issue is posting memorials at AA meetings for members who have passed away. My home group had a wall in the back that was never designated as such by the group conscience, but became a de facto memorial wall. When a beloved member passed away, a picture and maybe a remembrance was put there.
