WHAT: A place to surface scatter cremated remains and purchase and place a flat memorial gravestone or bench in memory of a loved one.
WHAT TO DO: An individual or family member completes an application to purchase the "right" to place this memorial plate or a bench, and surface scatter cremated remains in a specified area. This garden can also simply be used to memorialize someone if no cremated remains are available.
WHERE: Look for the cemetery bulletin board and the old white GULF CEMETERY sign . Nearby those is a 4ft grey granite bench donated by GLMCO Memorials. It says "Memorial Scatter Garden" on the side. Pathways of pine straw wind through this area.
