Bedford Remembers

In Remembrance

A cherished part of the Bedford High School Alumni Association is a Memorial page provided to remember with honor and affection those Bedford Kicking Mules — alumni, students, faculty and staff — whose deaths affected our community.

We fondly remember our friends, classmates and faculty who have passed away. They will be missed.

The Bedford Memory Tree

The Bedford Memory Tree is located at the Bedford Branch Library in the Children’s Garden.  It is a place of quiet contemplation for family members and friends of the young people who have passed away in their youth – a place where loved ones can peacefully reflect on the memory of the person they have lost.  The Tree represents the community’s support of our grieving families.

Individual engraved leaves respresent Bedford’s youth (under 25 years old) who have passed away.  More information can be found on their Library webpage.
