Wall Of Memories
This memorial wall is open to anyone who wishes to place a permanent, bronze plaque. The plaque is custom made for your loved one and can include name, dates, personal history, poem, emblems, artwork, even cast bronze portraits. The Wall of Memories is located on the center pathway on the south side of the Elm Dormitory.
Also, many families are choosing to scatter the cremated remains of their loved one in a favorite place; the ocean, or even in the skies above. While that may seem fitting at the time, it means that you do not have a consistent place to connect with the memories of the person you loved so dearly.
Having a permanent place – in a cemetery, mausoleum, or cremation garden – that can be visited regularly by family and friends is an essential part of the grieving process. It becomes a focal point of memorialization and gives everyone a special place to go to remember your loved one, or to commemorate important occasions.
A permanent place to reflect on your loved one becomes a way of connecting to a family’s past. Visiting the resting place of grandparents or great-grandparents may provide children with an anchor to their personal history. It is a connection to the past, to love shared. It truly honors and carries on the relationship you built with your loved one.
