43 Things to Memorialize on Memorial Day

Times to remember, people to morn, things that are buried, and those that refuse to be. This Memorial Day, after the BBQ’s and sending our armed forces your dues, make sure to recall those things truly in need of memorializing.

It could be a person, place, or thing. And it has to be either mourned that it's gone, or noted for even existing in the first place. It's like what 9GAG is to Nicktoons.
