The Ultimate
Gift of Love

“Even more important … was that I didn’t have to plan anything because everything was there. What church, what minister, what reading. To go into a funeral and be sold a funeral package would have been the most stressful thing.” – C.K. Jones

In Their Words

It wasn’t until my father died that I realized what a favor he had done for us by becoming a member of the Cleveland Memorial Society. The Society offered ­wonderful support during a time of grief.
When my spouse died suddenly, I learned how much she loved me. When I couldn’t make decisions, I didn’t have to. Everything was planned. Thank you, Cleveland Memorial Society for helping us be prepared.
