This week we honor and remember the Four Chaplains, who sacrificed their lives to save their fellow service members during WWII. Four Chaplains Day honors the memory of these brave men and how they saved others during the 1943 sinking of the Dorchester in the North Atlantic. Read their incredible story here: fourchaplains.org/four-chaplains/
At the Park, we honor the Four Chaplains every day. Our Faith Crypts section features a marble sculpture of the chaplains with a powerful message: “To live in hearts that love us is not to die.”
We also remain committed to helping local veterans and their families. We currently have special programs in place to help with your preplanning and burial needs. To find out how much you can save, please give us a call or visit www.wcmp.org/about-us/veteran-benefits/... See MoreSee Less

Children experience grief differently than adults, based on their age and development. If you are guiding your child through this process, here are a few ways to provide support and help ease their pain.
- Help your child understand that the person who passed away lives on in his or her memory. - Pass along items from their family member or have your child compile pictures and other special items to create their own memories. - For younger children, most of their knowledge of that person will come from memories of other family members. Talk about them often and remind children how much they were loved by them. - Books can offer support and comfort for grieving children. (They can be helpful for adults, too.)
We would like to remind families that we will be having a price increase on January 1st. If you have put off preplanning your own arrangements, securing a marker, or just weighing your options, please give us a call. We can arrange an appointment for you at the office or conduct inquiries via email or phone. Locking in today’s prices will not only help you financially down the road, but it will also give you piece of mind along the way – and that is something you can't put a price tag on. ...
