Tombstones softly whisper stories of our loved ones gone before us. Listen with your heart as you enter their places of rest.
There is more to recording a cemetery than collecting the names of persons. Each person has a story, and represents a history. The artwork and inscriptions on the grave markers have meaning, or at least, represent traditions carried over through the centuries. A cemetery is a memorial to our lives, remembrance of our traditions, history of our people, perpetual record of yesterday, and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today. Being placed into the ground, we return to our origins.
A cemetery exists because EVERY life is worth loving and remembering - ALWAYS.
