The Choice Is Yours
The sacred ground of Gate of Heaven Cemetery offers many burial options. Memorials for below ground burials can be either traditional upright monuments or flush bronze memorials. At Gate of Heaven, the choice is yours. Beautiful Garden Mausoleums also provide the option of above ground entombment in wall crypts enhanced with facades of polished granite.
