Construction on new section of cemetery
Construction has been completed on a new section of the cemetery and some burials have already been done there. This is the second time that the cemetery has installed "pre-bury" vaults. This means that all dirt is removed and all burial vaults are put in the ground at once. These new graves will allow the cemetery to open and close the graves without the use of the heavy equipment that is normally necessary, thereby saving the grass and soil from wear and tear. This will make for a much more attractive section.
In addition, with this new section, the cement pads for monuments have been pre-poured so that trimming and care of the grass along the monuments looks much more attractive.
Memorial Video Tributes
At Park View, we now offer families the added service of Memorial Video Tributes. These personalized tributes allow survivors to memorialize their loved one throughout the various stages of life. We take approximately 30 photos, scan them, and professionally edit them with pan, fade, zoom, and other effects, and set them to music. The finished product is shown at the memorial service and, following the service, presented to the family in DVD format to be viewed and cherished for years to come. These Memorial Tributes can also be uploaded to the internet to allow family and friends, all over the world, to actively participate in celebrating the individuals life. Please see our Memorial Video Tributes page.
Audio / Video Equipment for Chapel
Our chapel has been updated with a new sound system and flat panel LCD monitor for viewing our Video Memorial Tributes. These individually crafted tributes seamlessly integrate 25 to 30 photos of a loved one's life. When set to music and with some professional editing, these tributes take a funeral service or memorial service to a whole new level of personalization.

When General John P. Logan first proclaimed this day of remembrance in 1868, he wrote: “Let no vandalism of avarice or neglect, no ravages of time testify to the present or to the coming generations that we have forgotten as a people the cost of a free and undivided republic. If other eyes grow dull, other hands slack, and other hearts cold in the solemn trust, ours shall keep it well as long as the light and warmth of life remain to us.”

Park View is pleased to announce that we have a new - state of the art - crematory. This new crematory will allow us to decrease our turn around time for families wanting to get remains of loved ones back quickly. We know that waiting weeks for the remains of a family member is unacceptable - which is what many funeral homes do! It is our goal to return remains to the family as quickly as possible - while still maintaining the integrity of our strict cremation procedures, and of course, following the law. This new equipment will allow us to do just that - all while being much more environmentally friendly.
