This wonderful statue is located in the north new part of cemetery. It is call the Assumption of Mary: "All powerful God, you raised in the sinless Virgin Mary, mother of your Son, body and soul to the glory of heaven. May we see heaven as our final goal and come to share her glory."

Opening Prayer
Feast of the Assumption
August 15th
A gift from Amelia Irvine
1919-2004

This plaque is on a stone within the garden, but has a lovely poem.

Miss Me - But Let Me Go
When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little-but not too long
And now with your head bowed low
Remember the love that we once shared
Miss me-but let me go.
For this a hourney we all must take
And each must go alone
It's all a part of the Master's plan
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds
Miss me-but let me go.
