Visited at sunset...a beautiful and moving tribute to those lost in this tragedy. I liked the symbolism incorporated into the design & also the tributes to each individual.

The bonfire memorial was a very moving experience for my wife and me. The tributes to each of the 12 was personal and respectful. This simple memorial is well done and captures the symbolism of bonfire and aggie spirit.
