McWhirter Memorial Garden

10645131_10152693795612560_4433200113901085251_nSt. Richard’s Episcopal Church, located in the striking, mountain setting of Skyforest, offers a serene Memorial Garden for interment of people of all faiths.   Amid tranquil, mountain landscaping, this quarter-acre site provides both a beautiful final resting place and a peaceful meditation garden for visitors.

Within the lovely, bricked central area, interments are in unmarked, undesignated locations, and engraved pavers with name and birth/death years are placed in the circle.  There is a tax-deductible donation of $375 for members of St Richard’s and their families or $700 for all others.  All interments are recorded in the Parish Register.  Pre-need purchase is available.  All monies received are used for the perpetual care of the garden.

Memorial bricks, engraved with name and dates, may be purchased for $200 those one wishes to remember who are not interred in the garden.  These will be placed within the inner circle.
