Hello! May flowers are in bloom and isn't it wonderful to see? Speaking of May, it's always a special time when the second Sunday of the month comes around each year. It is a time to remember someone very special in our lives - the first woman we knew, our mothers.

This month gives us at Bay Gardens and Bayview Cemetery a chance to share a new initiative with you, our valued community members and friends.

You may have noticed a change in our uniform lately, the addition of pink scarves and neckties for our staff members. Although typically, October is breast cancer awareness month, we chose May as a tribute to the women in our lives who have been touched by cancer in any way. To that, we will be wearing the new scarves and ties for the entire month to bring more awareness to this issue.

What a touching tribute to our mothers, grandmothers, sisters, daughters, aunts, relatives and friends.


 

Welcome New Staff Members!

Please join us in giving a warm welcome to our newest team members:

Estuardo Lopez and Trevor Trimble, both experienced licensed funeral directors in Ontario, located typically at our Rymal location, and Secina Ching, Cemetery Services Director, who brings much experience in cemetery sales and knowledge to Bayview Cemetery, Crematory & Mausoleum. Welcome aboard!
