Tribute to a Lost Loved One

Many people believe it's a tribute to a mother or wife lost in car accident ahead of Mother's Day.

"A couple of old google map photos shows a cross in the field just behind the double arrow street sign. I'm curious to hear this story as well," B. H.

To me it looks like s memorial to a beloved partner who passed away. Likely a wife or bride to be. 2 glasses of Champaign, roses and other gifts of red....touches my heart and makes me sad for the one left grieving," C.S.


"I manage spirituality and it seems like an 'amarre', it’s a kind of witchcraft, for the beyond, not in this life. It is not good that, don’t touch it!!!!!! No reason to touch it!!!. I recommend not to go through that street. If someone destroy that, with the car or in any way, is very bad." S. O.

"It’s not a memorial for a mother or a son, definitely it’s witchcraft. The red candles, the apple, the ribbons over the candle, everything are witchcraft things," S. O.

"As heartfelt as I think I'd like to believe my gut tells me this is witchcraft. I am waiting for someone to chime in. The ribbon around the apple is concerning," M.C.

A Spiritual Offering

"Looks like an offering to La Santa Muerte," T. D.
