We found this roadside memorial (I thought of Larry A. and his series of documenting these) all the way down on East Beach, where the seawall extends to Fort San Jacinto. I have never known if all the stuffed animals are left because a child died or if they are left in memory of older people too, but the cross that has "Alijah" also has a tiny helicopter and truck sitting on the arms. Losing anyone in a car wreck is such a tragedy, but to lose a child has to be the worst of all.
