Memorial should stay

I just wanted to speak out about Caltrans removing the memorial of a young woman who lost her life near Kilroys not to long ago. I believe that her family or friends put up a picture of her and a cross with some flowers around it. On Friday, May 19, Caltrans removed it and tossed it in the back of their truck. Don’t they have roads to work on or potholes needing to be fixed? Did they remove it because of the cross or did someone complain? I drove by this memorial every day and was reminded each time of how precious life is and that we all must obey the speed limit and be kind to our fellow man. We should keep these memorials up to remind us all.
