Many families visit Lakewood on Mother’s Day to remember and celebrate the amazing women who have influenced our lives, including our mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, daughters and friends, now laid to rest at Lakewood.

A symbol of love and strength

Stop by Lakewood and pick up a pink carnation in honor of mothers and mother figures who are missed and remembered on this special day. Pink carnations are the official flower of Mother’s Day, and a symbol of the purity, strength and endurance of a mother’s love. Flowers will be available from 10 AM until 1 PM (while supplies last).

Tie a ribbon on the Living Memory Tree

Take a moment to reflect and add a ribbon to Lakewood’s Living Memory Tree, a collective display of remembrance and love.
