Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers. It is one of the most thankless jobs and at the same time, most rewarding. Being a Mother is one of God’s most loving gifts to the universe. Dads…while special in their own way…Mothers are the glue that holds all of life together. Call or visit your Mom today and let her know how much she means to you. For many, their Moms are already in heaven. Offer a prayer of thanks that you were lucky enough to have her as your Mom. Enjoy this sunny day and praise the Lord for Mother’s everywhere.
The men and women that you see at the entrances to Calumet Park Cemetery on Mothe’rs Day are passing out flowers and a newsletter with the Memorial Weekend activities. If you are looking for something to do on May 27, bring the family out for a fun evening of free fireworks, hayrides, and horse and buggy rides. Bring a blanket to sit on or a comfortable beach chair. You will have a fun evening. Starts at sevenish.

Mother’s Day is but a few weeks away. Remember her with flowers, or a dinner out, or a makeover and massage at a local spa. For some mother’s, a simple day of rest would be a great gift. Use your imagination and make that special lady in your life feel the love that is in your heart.

Good for Sunday and Monday only, a special Mother’s Day offer of 40% off all pre-need grave purchases and a free vase for all monument purchases.
Thanks to all moms for all you do…for your families, your communities, your churches and for all of us who need you!
In my many years working in the death care field, the one truth I have learned is to appreciate those important people in your life…every day. As simplistic as it may sound, God has His plans for each of us, and He does not consult with us regarding when He is going to rip a mom or a dad or a child or a spouse from any of our lives.
Imagine going to work on a Monday morning with the knowledge that your “customers” are, for the most part, there to see you because someone died. Work at an ice cream parlour and everyone you meet is happy. Work at a cemetery or a funeral home and nobody is. So, during this time of year when mothers are honored, and veterans are saluted at cemeteries across this nation, go to the important people in your life and give them a hug…just because.
In fact, when was the last time you told your child or your husband or wife or brother or sister or parents that they are special and that you want to thank them for being a part of your life? If you did give a hug lately, then you know the good feeling you give and that you receive with just a simple touch or a kind word. If you have not involved yourself in such acts of love, try it. You may find that it is a habit worth nurturing.
To all mother’s out there, happy Mother’s Day.
And to all families of veterans that have had their last hurrah, thank you all for your unselfish dedication and sacrifices for your nation.
Calumet Park wishes a wonderful and loving day to all the mothers that have meant so much to their families. For those families who will be visiting Calumet Park Cemetery on mother’s day, we will have a flower in the remembrance of moms who have passed (flowers while they last) for you as you enter the gate. As always, our prayers go out to those who will not be able to share the day with their mom’s.
May the blessings of God shine down upon all mothers on this special day, and on all of “mom’s” kids whose mothers have gone home to be with our Creator. This day can be especially difficult for us who can’t just pick up the phone to say the simple words “Happy Mother’s Day” And for some of us, this will be the first Mother’s Day without Mom, and it will be hard, and lonely, and confusing, and … and … Continue reading
