Grief upon grief

The report in today’s New York Times reveals that body parts of some of the 9/11 victims were incinerated at the mortuary at Dover Air Force Base and then released to a landfill. If true, this information only adds to the grief and anguish of those whose loved ones’ remains were never identified. Families may have assumed that the bodies of their loved ones had become part of the wreckage that mixed with the ground where it all rested.

How would you memorialize a loved one if you had no body, no remains, to bury?
