Jacksonville Pet " Cemetery and Memorial Park "
Our pet cemetery and memorial park offers many different "reflection" options for the memorialization of your pet.
Jacksonville Pet Cemetery now offers the combined services of the burial of a pet owners personal cremated remains ( ashes ) along side of their loved family pet(s) cremated remain ( ashes ).
We have developed a section of the memorial park for this specific service. The section is called the " Family Memorial Garden " and is only for the burial of cremated remains ( ashes ).
We have other sections of the park desiginated for the casketed burial of a pet although pet owners ashes cannot be interred with the burial of a pets casketed remains.

Your service has totally blown me away. First - the delivery in a gift bag. Then the enclosures.... I was not at all prepared to ever again see Joe's hair, or paw print - thank you so very much for those. I did not know why the cardboard box of ashes was so heavy - (the cremains of my parents and husband were much lighter) until I undid the cardboard and saw the beautiful carved wooden box! I've been crying tears of gratitude all day! P.S. In my experience, human cremations are not handled as well. Gratefully Yours, Linda Max Collins
