Permanent Memorialization

This means creating a dedicated place for family and friends to connect and remember your loved one.

A Consistent Place of Healing

A Consistent Place of Healing

In our modern society, people aren't given enough time to grieve their losses. The pressures of work, even the simple emotional need to ‘be busy,’ often bring the bereaved back into the ‘real’ world far too soon.

Also, many families are choosing to scatter the cremated remains of their loved one in a favorite place; the ocean, or even in the skies above. While that may seem fitting at the time, it means that you do not have a consistent place to connect with the memories of the person you loved so dearly.

Having such permanent place - in a cemetery, mausoleum, or cremation garden - that can be visited regularly by family and friends is an essential part of the time following a death. It becomes a focal point of memorialization, and gives everyone a special place to go to remember your loved one, or to commemorate important occasions. It can help to make a birthday or anniversary less painful.

A permanent place to reflect on your loved one becomes a way of connecting to a family's past. Visiting the resting place of grandparents or great-grandparents may provide children with an anchor to their personal history. It is a connection to the past, to love shared. It truly honors the relationship you still have – and will always have – with that person.

Refer to our Cemetery Rules and Regulations for types of Memorials allowed.  If in doubt or you have a question about items, please contact our Cemetery office to get permission.  

The Cemetery is not responsible for any valuable items left at the gravesite. Please refrain from leaving items of personal or monetary value on gravesites as they may be removed if they are not appropriate or worse, taken by a stranger visiting the grounds.

The Cemetery reserves the right to remove any items deemed not appropriate.  If the cemetery staff removes items, they will be and placed in storage for pick up without notification.  Contact the cemetery office if you would like to look for an item in the removed items storage and our staff will escort you to the storage location.
