Living Memorial Program

With the purchase of selected caskets or urns from Advent, a tree will be planted in a national forest as a living memorial and tribute to a loved one.

This unique program, made possible through a special agreement with the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service, has been responsible for adding millions of trees to our national forests in need of reforestation. As a result, needed shelter has been provided for our wildlife, water and wind erosion have been reduced and the air we all breathe is a little purer.

Receptions and Additional Options

Advent offers some new options that many families have expressed an interest in. We are happy to arrange receptions from the very simple to the quite grand complete with catering, beverages, music… whatever a family wishes.

With photos provided by family members, we can create a digital “slide show” to be shown on a large screen. If desired, we can arrange to have photographs retouched or restored and transformed into a framed “oil” painting. A balloon release, fresh flowers dropped into the Potomac River or the Chesapeake Bay…just about anything is possible. Just ask us, we’re here to help. Charges vary for these services and can be provided upon request.
