God of the living and the dead,
help us to honour the life and hope and courage of NN.
Remembering past times, 
and our relationships with N, now gone from us,
we dedicate this tree/rosebush/whatever to his/her memory.
We honour the life s/he continues to give to us,
as we tell and retell her/his story
in our congregation, our families, and our community.
This tree is a sign of remembrance,
but we dedicate it also as a sign of hope.
Let its growth be a sign of your grace to us.
In Jesus' name we pray.   Amen.
