On Friday, May 28th we planted a tree and several bushes as a memorial to our son, Sam. We arranged the planting ahead of time with Steve who was very willing to help facilitate our plans. He provided his assistant Dave to help us with our project, but in reality Dave did most of the hard physical work which involved digging and moving very large rocks and building rock walls. This was more help than we had expected. Dave did this hard work cheerfully and without taking a break. He seemed to take pride in the work he was doing and making sure it was done correctly. We were very impressed and most appreciative!
It has been our impression
during this past year when we have visited the cemetery on a
regular basis that the grounds are not only being well cared
for but that the caretakers are compassionate people who truly
care about making it a place that meets the needs of the people
who come there to mourn their family and friends.
Bayview Cemetery is a beautiful asset to our community not only for those of us who have loved ones there, but also to others who just enjoy walking through the park like garden setting. Thank you Ketchikan and the staff at Bayview Cemetery!
