A common thread throughout our world is to memorialize someone who has died often through a ceremony. A memorial service is a ceremony chosen when there is no body present, honoring the person deceased through dignity and simplicity.
Sacramento Memorial Garden offers a place of remembrance through Memorial Services and our Remembrance Wall. Individuals and families can arrange their own services at the Sacramento Memorial Garden with advance notice. The Sacramento Memorial Garden only offers the physical location for services. Arrangements for flowers, clergy, and other desires are the responsibility of the family.
Mothers and fathers who experience grief and loss due to abortion, miscarriage or stillbirth can find a memorial service an important part of their healing. For many, a ceremony is a special way to honor the baby's life while starting the journey of putting lives back together again. Holding a memorial service also offers help to family and friends who understand the baby as a beloved member of a family and who will be greatly missed.
In cases of abortion, a memorial service is the recognition of a life lost and a connection to the child is established. Many men and women name their child, write letters and present other meaningful ways of connection. A ceremony is often not an activity of closure, but one of new beginnings and hope.
