Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

As Funeral Directors, it is our calling to help comfort and console every family we serve.  Grief and the associated crisis is a lifelong event that needs to be tended to.  We do provide that long term support to families that ask for help.  All of this does not mean funerals must be sad, somber and dark events.  A funeral is to help family and friends say goodbye in a meaningful way to someone they loved.  This can be through traditional or nontraditional means.  The funeral serves a purpose.  It helps that same family and friends take the first steps to realizing that someone they love, and who made a mark on their lives, is gone.  As a society we are continually working to avoid the hard things in life.  Sometimes working through the difficult things makes us stronger and more well rounded people.  [Adapted from an article written by Jay Sperling in "The Independent" magazine.]  


Did you know we also have a cemetery and mausoleum?

Lawnwood Memorial Park, and Memory Chapel Mausoleum, are located directly beside and behind our Access Road Facility.  With 60 acres of rolling hills, Lawnwood has been serving the Newton-Rockdale-Walton area since it was started by Lewis Caldwell and Sam Cowan in 1954.  Lawnwood offers many different options for the remembrance of your cherished loved one, including in-ground burial, mausoleum crypts, Thomas Kinkade Hometown Chapel Urnarium inside the Mausoleum, and a new Cremation Garden located on the grounds of the Cemetery.

Lawnwood's offices are located within the Caldwell & Cowan Access Road facility.  Lawnwood staff is available to answer your questions at any time.  For more information follow this link to the Lawnwood Memorial Park website.
