At a cemetery, lives are commemorated, deaths are recorded, families are reunited, memories are made tangible and love is undisguised. Communities accord respect, families bestow reverence, historians seek information and our heritage is thereby enriched.
Testimonies of devotion, pride and remembrance are carved in stone to pay warm tribute to accomplishments and to the life - not death - of a loved one. The cemetery is homeland for family memorials that are a sustaining source of comfort to the living. A cemetery is a history of people; a perpetual record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today.
A cemetery exists because every life is worth remembering - always.

Glidden memorial Thank you for the additional information on Ruth (Greenway) Glidden, and her son Steven. It is nice that people share information that they may have in addition to photographs, thank you for taking that extra effort - it is appreciated. - Ron Glidden
I will be sure to keep checking on the marker when I visit Calvary now that I found the location, and will update you when it is engraved. Will do the same for Capt. Benson, although I do find it strange that he doesn't even have a military marker, and that his mother has been there since 1989 with no marker at all. Thanks!
John Benson I went to fulfill this request as well. There is no stone, however there were some flags and a Waltham Police emblem marking the grave. I confirmed the location by checking the plot next to this one in the cemetery records to ensure it was the correct site. I left this photo request open as well, please let me know if you want me to add the photo of the flags to the memorial through the photo request or not. Thanks.
I went to Calvary for your photo request - Helen's name has not been engraved on the stone. I took another photo, please let me know if you want me to add it to her memorial even though her name does not appear. I have left your photo requests open with a note on both of them. Thanks.
There was no stone marker for Lucia, nor for Phillip. Lucia appears in the cemetery records, so if you would like I can add the overall photo of all the stones and make a note there is no individual marker for her, since we know she is listed as buried there. If you look at that overall photo on the other memorials, you will see behind the individual stones is a white stone that simply says Maynard, with no individual names, I have a close up of that one as well which could be used for Lucia.
Phillip is not listed at all in cemetery records, so I am not sure where he might be.
