The Crossing Memorial was dedicated on August 26, 2007.
Tim Geisick lost an aunt and uncle in the accident. His aunt and uncle were Kathy Brantner age 11, and Mark Brantner age 6. His family didn't talk about the accident, but Tim always believed that the children who lost their lives deserved a permanent memorial at the accident site.
After the Kevin Vaughn's series, "The Crossing" ran in the Rocky Mountain News and Greeley Tribune, more people were aware of the tragedy. Tim knew it was a good time to make his dream a reality. He was able to raise $10,000 over three years. One donation came from Germany.
The land for the memorial was donated by the land-owner, Lonnie Bunting. Norman's Memorials made the granite memorial that lists each of the victims' names.
