|the surrounding Jacksonville area, offers a wide range of personalized options for the families we serve. Our cemetery grounds have a memorial park section, an upright monument section, two open-air mausoleums with crypts and niches, columbarium's with niches for those who have selected cremation, a scattering garden, two consecrated Jewish areas, private personal estates, and a Garden of Innocence in which burial spaces are free of charges to families who have lost a child under the age of two years old.
We are a non-denominational cemetery and serve families from all different religions; our grounds have been blessed by various clergy from a wide range of faiths. Ponte Vedra Valley cemetery in Ponte Vedra Beach is open to all families regardless if they are using our funeral home or have selected another option. We work hand in hand with funeral homes in and out of the area to provide excellent service to all families.
Our cemetery has a Veteran's Circle to honor those who have served our country. This area has niches for the burial of cremains, and spaces for the placement of Veteran's Markers. This is also the focal point of our annual Veteran's Day Ceremony which is held every November 11th at 10:30. Our ceremony includes a guest speaker who is selected from area Veterans, a riderless horse, honor guard, and dual taps as played at Arlington National Cemetery.
Another tribute to our country includes the retired flag depository located on our grounds. A red, white and blue mail drop box is located just inside our gates, in front of our funeral home for those who have old, damaged flags. The flags are then properly retired for our community and the ashes of the flags are spread over the graves of veterans buried in our cemetery.
Ponte Vedra Valley holds a special ceremony, our Memory Tree Lighting, for the families who have a loved one intered at our cemetery. This ceremony is always the Saturday following the Thanksgiving weekend. A special invitation is sent out to families, and an ornament with the loved oneís name is placed on our Memory Tree. At 4:30 p.m., on the day of the ceremony, we have a trio from the Jacksonville Symphony play holiday music for a time of fellowship, and at 5:00 p.m. sharp, Patricia West, owner and founder of Ponte Vedra Valley, begins reading the names on the tree.
This is a special time to devote to the loved one who is not with you during the holiday season. We also have Remembrance Votive Lights available for purchase for those who would like to have perpetual light at their loved ones gravesite throughout the holidays.
