MOMENT TO PAUSE: Traditional Funerals will officially open their new Military Service Memorial Garden with a pre Anzac Day service on Friday, April 21.

THE team at Traditional Funerals know the importance of memorials.

After more than 20 years of business, Traditional Funerals has launched a memorial park to provide the community a sanctuary where family and friends can come to reflect, honour and pay tribute to their loved ones.

Moreton Memorial Park will span across 12 acres of land to provide a place of peace and privacy.

The park includes a Military Service Memorial Garden dedicated to those members of the community involved in or affected by a war or conflict.

Traditional Funerals owner Bruce Jarvie said it's hugely important as many of the staff and members of the community have served with the Australian Defence Force.

"According to psychologists, memorials help survivors to come out of the emotional shock in a fruitful manner,” Mr Jarvie said.

"Dealing with death, loss and grief, is difficult for any person - by providing a permanent resting place for the deceased, the survivors also get a place where they can go and show their respect to the

deceased.”

"It is only due to memorials that even today we are able to remember the people who were important in our lives, from parents to presidents and show our respect to them.”

Traditional Funerals and Moreton Bay Memorial Park will be hosting a pre Anzac Day service on Friday, April 21 at 9am.

The community is invited to attend and commemorate the opening and dedication of the Military Service Memorial GardenForces.

Refreshments will be served after the ceremony - to RSVP contact Traditional Funerals on 38886633.
