Garden Of Memories
Every cemetery in the world is in effect a garden of memories; a sanc
tuary to place the remains of a loved one, to visit when the mood moves and where the imagery conjures up peace and tranquility.
Traditionally, in the village setting, a church be
ould toll to indicate a death in the community and the ritual of caring for the dead would unfold. This involved family and friends who assisted in preparing the body, building the coffin, and digging the grave, while the priest would give last rites, comfort the mourners and lead the procession to the grave yard for burial.
In our contemporary society, we, as funeral professionals have taken
over the responsibility of caring for the body on its path from the place of death to the grave. The “Garden of Memories” provides a respectable means of reverently returning the body after cremation, now in its purest form, back to mother earth. The simple act of following the edict “earth to earth, ashes to ashes, and dust to dust" in an eternal resting place conducive to such a ritual now exists, with visiting rites on any Sunday thereafter, in every season.
Not a cemetery, not a grave but a sanctuary, a special place to perpetuate the memory of someone very special in our lives.
