When Autumn Leaves Begin To Fall
We Treasure The Memories Of Years Gone By
Daughter: Look at the wonderful fall colors. Nature's next
stage to the cycle of life.
Father: Oh yes how wonderful!
Daughter: Speaking of the stages of life, have you made a
decision to put mom's cremated remains to rest? I know you
had her home for a while.
Father: I already have. Placement in a Columbarium Niche is
the way I want to keep the memories alive. Sometime ago, your
Mother and I toured the historic U.S. Columbarium at Fresh
Pond Crematory. You should see it. Grand Terrazzo floors and
beautiful niches adorned with Tiffany style stained glass.
It's magnificent. We were so impressed, we said this is the place
we want to be.

FRESH POND CREMATORY
Daughter: What exactly is a columbarium?
Father: It’s a building where cremated remains
are memorialized with honor.
Daughter: How is it different from a cemetery?
Father: Well, to begin with, visiting the glass
front niche and viewing the beautiful urns has a
more personal and close feeling.
Daughter: Father, I can certainly appreciate that
Father: Besides, being indoors & temperature
controlled and all, it’s perfect for us. You can visit
anytime, no matter the weather.
