Many people consider their pets as part of the family - almost like one of the kids.
So when a pet dies there is a certain amount of grief that is associated with that experience.
Along with that grief is a desire to provide your pet with a peaceful final resting place.
For some people, this can be done on their own property. For others, there is a desire for
a more permanent place. In 1987, Stan Ray opened the state's first pet cemetery.
The Garden of Memories Pet Cemetery offers families a permanent and peaceful place to remember their
pets. The pet cemetery is located just west of the funeral home and is open for visitation
during daylight hours. The Pet Cemetery Plan includes a grave space, the opening and closing
of that space, a container, and a temporary marker (which can be used as a permanent marker).
In addition to earth burial, we also offer the option of cremation.
