Memorial Park Cemetery is a beautiful place. The fountain and tower in the center are also worth stopping for. The office staff is always willing to help with any questions, and can provide a map if you'd like one. I was so glad to have found this tree dedicated to such a young soldier who sacrificed his life for our country.
