Families In Zeeland Have To Remove Roadside Memorial [POLL]

The Ottawa County Sheriff has told a family they have to takedown the makeshift memorial to their daughter because it’s “too close to the road”. Amy Diane Linares was killed nearly 2 years ago by a drunk driver, and since her death an intricate roadside memorial was created by friends and family near Westbound I-196 by the Zeeland exit. Now since it’s “too close” to the freeway, the family has to dismantle the memorial.

In Sunday’s MLive.com/Press, the family is quoted as saying “They said we couldn’t have it here because it’s next to the freeway,” said Lazaro Linares, as he shoveled up the chips on the ground. He was told that he could only leave up the cross because it is made of wood.”

The full story is here: “Holland families forced to remove roadside memorial year after teens killed: ‘Pretty sad because it’s all we have’”

Should the family have to take the memorial down, or should they be allowed to keep the memorial up? Let us know!
