The annual Evergreen Perpetual Care Cemetery and Mausoleum Luminary Service honoring loved ones and friends buried here was held Saturday, December 5, at 6:00 p.m.
The music, the meditation, and the lighting of the luminary candles is designed to bring comfort and hope to friends and family as they celebrate God’s gift of memory.
This is the day that God has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it even as the night arrives and darkness cries out for light. God’s sunlight will come soon enough.
As we gather at the close of this day, we light the candles in memory of loved ones who have departed this life.
