Holiday Memorial Programs

The Holiday Service is being changed to a Holiday Open House

Holiday Memorial Service Aberdeen SD Sgt. 1st class Aaron Walberg

Sgt. 1st Class Aaron Walberg, National Guards, salutes the Veterans memorial after placing a wreath in honor of all veterans at Sunset Memorial Gardens in Aberdeen, SD.

The purpose of the holiday open house is to offer a time of healing and remembrance during the holiday season. The open house is for anyone; whether you have a loved one buried at Sunset Memorial Gardens or elsewhere.  It is open everyone and provides a chance to be with others who understand.  Live music and refreshments will be provided.  Families may also place an ornament on the Family Tree in the Mausoleum/Chapel in honor of their loved one.

The staff and management of Sunset Memorial Gardens would like to express our sincere sympathy to you for the loss of your loved ones. We would also like to express our sincere gratitude to our service men & women who unselfishly ensure our freedoms remain intact.  Holiday wreaths will be placed at the Veteran’s Memorials.

The best way to honor someone who is not with us anymore is to continue living our life and keep their memory alive through everyday events. It’s the little things, the small, everyday occurrences that you’ll remember; the laughs, the stories, the smiles. And even though it seems like you can never recover from your loss, it is these very memories that will help push the pain away and bring back the smiles.


“To live in hearts we leave behind, is not to die.” Thomas Campbell
