Tree Of Life

Prominently located in Parker's lobby, the Tree of Life is a wonderful way to honor or memorialize a loved one. Tree leaves recognize gifts of $1,000, $500 and $250 and stones recognize gifts of $5,000 and $2,500.

Yahrzeit Program

In response to the many requests for memorialization, Parker offers plaques on a memorial wall, prominently located in our Chapel. In observance of the anniversary of your loved one's passing, his/her plaque will be illuminated and memorial prayers recited. You will also receive advance notification of the Yahrzeit date. The fee for a plaque and memorial services is $250; double plaques are available for $500.


Whether you make a gift online, by mail, or by phone, we will gratefully acknowledge your thoughtful contribution by notifying the individual you designate with a beautiful card (no gift amount enclosed). We will also send you an acknowledgement letter and tax deductible receipt for your records.
