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 the 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.
