As it appears, it is three trees growing in close proximity, a
cardinal alighted in its lofty branches. The symbolism embodied within these
figures is that of the Holy Trinity, the three circles intertwined revealing

trees themselves denote our very motto, which serves as a reminder to those who
pass through our doors, which is we are here to assist before, during, and
after a loss. Finally, the cardinal hearkens back to the old saying, “when a cardinal appears, a loved one is near”.
In combination, these elements provide a practical and visual reminder that we,
as family and friends, servants and pillars within our communities alike, all
share the same sense of grief and have within us the ability to rise above it,
knowing our loved ones are cared for.
