We Were There For You, Dad!

It was my dad's birthday yesterday! If he were still on this earth, he'd be 96. 
Dad wasn't Jewish, but one of his sons-in-law is. There is a nice Jewish tradition about putting a stone on a grave marker.
Why do they do it? 
From my research, the Jewish tradition of a pebble on a headstone symbolizes the continuing presence of love and memories, which are as strong and durable as a rock.
It also shows that family and friends have been there to visit the grave.
It's a nice tradition, so I put a pebble on the headstone.
Love you, Dad! 
Happy birthday!
Do you have any family traditions for loved ones who've passed on?
