Alex Palkovich created Alone with Memories in honor of his parents who survived German concentration camps in WWII. He donated it to the Florence Veterans Park in honor of all who were presented with a folded flag in memory of a loved one who never returned. Not only is the woman alone with her memories, but the loved one passed with memories never shared.
The model for this statue was Deborah Baccus, who also modeled for On the Way to the Market. Palkovich spotted her on the sidewalk during the SC Pecan Festival in downtown Florence.
