Shepherd’s Columbarium and Memorial Garden offers memorials that can honor parents, family members, friends, or for yourself if your remains will be at another location.

Each memorial will be etched into a 4” x 8” plaque, affixed to a granite marker, located in front of the water feature in the center of the garden area. Each plaque can be purchased for $500, and includes engraving. You can memorialize one person, a couple, or a family.

The plaques will accommodate four lines of text with 23 characters per line (including spaces).
