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 engraved in stone 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 record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today. A cemetery exists because every life is worth loving and remembering – – – always. – UNKNOWN

  1. A place of rest, of comfort and respect.. Would that all cemeteries were such.

    • Indeed Chris, indeed… There are sections, in one part of a particular South Australian Cemetery, where I can “feel” the disturbed souls. It’s incredibly distressing and I believe this sacrilege needs to stop. Thanks for caring.
