Claybar Cemeteries have rescheduled their 2nd Annual Luminary Remembrance Services due to the forecast of severe weather. A combined Memorial Service for both Hillcrest Memorial Gardens and Orange Forest Lawn has been rescheduled for December 14th at 4:00 pm at Hillcrest Memorial Gardens located at 4560 S Hwy 87. At the conclusion of this combined service, family members will join in placing lighting luminaries throughout both cemeteries. As they light the candles, an amazing transformation unfolds. The flickering glow of 4500 candles at Hillcrest and 2500 candles at Orange Forest Lawn, remind us all of important relationships shared; they honor and celebrate life and inspire us to remember and give thanks. During the night, hundreds of families will drive through the cemetery to witness a truly spectacular scene. Please make plans to share in these very special evenings. Luminaries will glow throughout the night. *RESCHEDULED SERVICE INFORMATION Combined Luminary Remembrance Service Saturday, December 14, 2013 at 4:00 p.m. Hillcrest Memorial Gardens Luminary lighting at Hillcrest and Orange Forest Lawn to follow service.

The Christmas season is a joyous occasion filled with excitement. To families who have experienced a death during the year, however, this season may be particularly difficult, even painful. We understand these feelings and would like to help. We placed a memorial tree in our lobby upon which a handcrafted, ceramic ornament has been placed in remembrance of those we have served since last Christmas. Dedicated to the Glory of God, the tree will serve as a tribute to the Peace and Hope that is Christmas. This will be a time in which we honor the memories of seasons past and deepen our awareness of the miraculous truth of Christmas. At the conclusion of the service, ornaments are presented to family members . . . a gentle reminder in years to come of the memories and miracles of this Holy season.
