The Looking Heart
The Worcester County Memorial Park is different than traditional cemeteries, which is evident as soon as one drives up and turns into the grounds. In addition to the simple, yet prominent, redwood cross that marks the entrance, there is also a sprawling heart formed of sculpted bushes and filled with beautiful flowers. It surrounds a statue of a husband and wife ready to welcome all visitors. Rather than suggesting that this serene place is the end of life, this beautiful landmark, which features a peaceful pond and glowing waterfall (illuminated at night), instead conveys a real feeling that the green, rolling hills beyond are the beginning of an everlasting journey.
