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 is 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. Whether you would like to do a balloon release, drop fresh flowers into the Potomac River or Chesapeake Bay—we work with you to make your creative ideas for honoring your loved one a reality.

Just ask us, we’re here to help. Charges vary for these services and can be provided upon request.
