A sign inside the cemetery gate. It reads
This is a Cemetery
Lives are commemorated - deaths are recorded - families are reunited - memories
are made tangible - and love is undisguised. This is a cemetery.
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 warm
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.
