The memorial is a permanent and lasting testimony to your loved one. Memorials give the living a specific place to visit and celebrate their loved one, whether it is through a certain verse that was unique to the deceased, a military emblem honoring their service to the nation or just a marker to let the family know where to go when paying respects.
We are Strong Advocates of Pre-planning Your Cemetery Needs
The Catholic philosophy of life has always contained a realistic attitude toward death. A Catholic knows that one of the most important tasks in life is to prepare for death. This is a spiritual preparation—an essential process which prepares each of us for that moment when we enter into eternity. Good planning makes for easier and more informed decisions about what you might need and relieves a huge burden from your family when death occurs. Pre-planning is also an important business matter that can give you peace of mind and the best opportunity for properly financing your choices.
