This small dedication ceremony is a chance for everyone to pause and reflect at the Botanical Center by the river. It is a time of remembrance of the past, who we are and what we are about. It is important for us to commemorate. The Living Tribute is a way they hope we will find some comfort, support and will represent a lasting memorial to us and our family's heritage. Each loved one's name is entered into a Living Tribute Book which is also located at each Hamilton's funeral home. Off to the left of the entrance closer to the exit are show beds which is where the Living Tribute Gardens are located. There will be four different show beds through out the year: Stumped, La Liuvia, The Ginkgo Sesquicentennial, and Holiday Exhibition
The first show bed is the Stumped Garden.
I have always felt peace among flowers and in a garden perhaps that is why I have a few at home. I guess it is no surprise as this is where I found peace with my Dad's passing.
