This is a Cemetery

Lives are commemorated - deaths are recorded, families are reunited - memories 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.

A cemetery is homeland for memorials that are a sustaining source of comfort for 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.

(Matthews Canada)
