This is a cemetery . . .


Lives are commemorated

Deaths are recorded

Families are reunited

Memories are made tangible

And love is undisguised.


Communities accord respect

Families bestow reverence

Historians seek information and

Our heritage is thereby enriched.


Testimonies of devotion, pride and

Remembrance, are cast in bronze to pay

Tribute to accomplishments, and to the life,

Not the death of a loved one.


The cemetery is homeland for memorials

That are a sustaining source of comfort

To the living.


A cemetery is a history of people

A perpetual record of yesterday and

A sanctuary of peace and quiet today.

A cemetery exists because every life

Is worth loving and remembering – always.
