More Information

Many of my clients wish there was some other way to honor, memorialize, and visit final resting places. Many keep ashes home and move them around, wondering what to do. Life Forest is a beautiful solution, providing sustainable, scenic, rejuvenating resting places that also give back the energy of that lost loved one to the new life born from the ashes. I believe it will bring great comfort and healing for many people, generations to come; as well as heal our Earth with the new growth of trees and flowers”

Depicted in the photo above are the scarves that were owned by the beautiful Celeste Yvonne Matras, July 13, 1954 - April 5, 2020, of Goffstown, NH.  Celeste’s door was always open, she was the woman you went to for help and she'd give you the shirt off her back. She was the life of the party and danced to the beat of her own drum. Her scarves were draped on the fence during her burial service at Life Forest, and have remained there as a colorful reminder of the amazing people who are buried here. 

Life Forest dedicates itself not only of course to the protection of nature, but also protecting the legacy of the people and pets that are buried at Life Forest. We do this through our Life Forest Community of stories, and of course love and respect for all who are resting here.

Celeste will never be forgotten, we hold her legacy strong.
