The inscriptions on the Ossuary
Often, cremated remains stay for years on a shelf or in a locker; although many people have found ways to scatter cremated remains: from rivers to parks to gardens to the Puget Sound. Today, with the popularity of cremations, our ossuary provides an affordable and permanent place of rest, so that future generations may have a beautiful place to visit and pay respects.
On Wednesday, April 29th, Evergreen Washelli held the Ossuary Dedication and Open House at Abbey View Memorial Park. Local community leaders spoke at the ceremony.
