Honored Memory Grave Care
Professional Grave Site Maintenance in Central Massachusetts
Autumn is here!
The leaves are turning, the days are getting shorter, and there's a chill in the air. Summer is over!
It's time to swap out those spent blooms at your loved one's gravesite for the rich colors of fall: burgundy, yellow, orange, and purple.
There's still time before the first snow falls and we tidy up everything for the winter.
You'd like to be there...
When a loved one passes on, you want to honor their memory by taking good care of their final resting place. But what if you live too far away? What if you can no longer maintain it yourself? Let us take that worry off your shoulders.
HMGC offers services not only to keep gravestones looking neat and marking special occasions, but by giving them any special attention that you request, such as reading a prayer on their birthday.
HMGC is your best source for grave care in Central Massachusetts!
HMGC is located in Central Massachusetts. Our standard grave care service area is Westborough, Southborough, Northborough, Marlborough, Shrewsbury, Hopkinton, Ashland and surrounding communities in Central Massachusetts.
We are happy to travel outside our standard service area for an additional fee based on distance.
Most cemeteries mow the grass. But they don’t have the manpower to trim, water, or plant flowers. HMGC offers both one-time visits for Memorial Day or Autumn planting & clean up, as well as on-going maintenance service. Have a specific request? Give us a call and let us know what you need to honor your loved one.
AMY BUTTIGLIERI - OWNER
Although I have a successful career as an IT Project Manager, I have always wanted to spend more time outdoors, and more time helping others!
One Memorial Day my father said to me "you know what you should do? Tend grave sites for people!" That inspiration was all I needed, and Honored Memory Grave Care was born.
My family has many relatives buried in Massachusetts, and we make several trips each year to keep them neat and to place flowers on special occasions. We started noticing that not everyone's grave site was tended, and wondered about their story. We also noticed some sites that were beautifully tended, with plantings and sparkling stones...some with lush, green grass! We wondered who tended these sites, too.
The fact is, more families are transient these days - children move away from their hometown, and as their relatives age, no one is able to tend family grave sites.
I did some research and found that most cemeteries cannot do more than mow the grass. It's also hard to find a florist who will deliver flowers to a particular grave. There are a few grave care businesses scattered about North America, but not enough to cover this growing need.
My philosophy is one of respect: for your loved ones and for your wishes. I also respect the rules of each cemetery, and my goal is to balance your needs with what is appropriate for the cemetery.
I am excited to have the opportunity to serve you and your family. My goal is to bring you peace of mind that your loved one's final resting place reflects the love and care you have for them.
Please give me a call - we are proud to be your best source for grave care in Central Massachusetts!
