Memorial window stickers have turned cars and trucks into moving tributes.

Chad Ely, the owner of C-Ely Signs and Graphics in Waynesboro, Pa., said he thinks the trend took off two years ago following the death of NASCAR icon Dale Earnhardt.

Numerous auto racing fans put memorial stickers in the back windows of their vehicles to mourn Earnhardt. Then, the practice evolved. Ely said people began asking for stickers to remember relatives or friends, too.

Ely, whose shops creates graphics and lettering for vehicles, said he gets at least one request each month for memorial stickers.
