Summerville has cemeteries and memorial parks. A cemetery is a burial ground for the deceased. A memorial park is a place where one can memorialize or remember the deceased. Rituals may include burial, cremation, memorial services, installing and inscribing headstones, cremation urns and many others. These services are designed to make the ritual memorable, dignified and loving. One can also pre-plan funerals, pick out headstones, etc. Personalized services may be offered to friends and family of the departed one, to mark the day in the way they would want to remember it. Veterans are buried with special honors. Memorial tablets, flower arrangements and the services of a funeral director are some other services that may be offered in Summerville.
Each year as a tradition to myself and this green movement website, I write on the events of Earth Day (April 22nd) this year is no exception. I will focus more on some new ideas and representations of our planet Earth. The symbols of Earth Day have been similar throughout the years, including an image or drawing of the Earth..
