What Families Are Saying
The community service adviser, Luis Vizcardo, helped me by answering all the questions I had regarding a possible land plot. He treated me with respect and patience as I asked him a million questions. I was nervous about this at first but was put at ease. On top of that the place itself is magnificent!Maria C. 5 stars ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

This is a beautiful location for one's final resting place. Mother is buried here with a great view of the ocean some distance away. The staff members are friendly, helpful and responsive, which is important during an emotionally stressful time. This location is also close enough for us to visit regularly.Tily C. 5 stars ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. In fact, there are more options for cremation memorials than for traditional casket burial. Cremation also allows you to have a permanent memorial at a cemetery, but you can also have a small keepsake urn at home.
It's never too late for a permanent memorial. Many families realize that having their loved one's urn with them at home was not a great idea. Having a permanent resting place for your loved one allows for other friends and family to visit your loved one's memorial too.
- Just like other open spaces, cemeteries have been impacted by the sheer number of people on our planet. However, we can always help you find the space you need, so don’t ever feel that there is not an option to meet your needs.
In short, Endowment Care / Perpetual Care refers to the funds that keep the cemetery grounds beautiful and well-kept, ensuring that your loved one will be taken care of each and every day over the long term. Once the service is over and those in attendance have left the grounds, we want to ensure that peacefulness and beauty are permanent parts of our grounds and Endowment Care makes this possible.
No, embalming is not required for burial. It is always your choice. Your decision may depend on such factors as whether the family selected a service with a public viewing of the body with an open casket; or to enhance the deceased's appearance for a private family viewing; or if the body is going to be transported by air or rail, or because of the length of time prior to the burial.
