Register Books

Many people set out guestbooks at funerals and memorial services to have a record of who attended the service. At the funeral service the family will likely be overwhelmed and may not remember everyone they spoke to. In addition, depending on the number of people in attendance, the family may not have had a chance to interact with everyone who came. Having a guestbook after the event allows the family to know who was there, and can offer comfort and solace after the event.

Video Tribute

This thoughtful gesture will allow you to share your life story with family and friends who attend the visitation. We have found one of the most therapeutic things a family can do immediately following a loss, together thumb through photo albums. If you are moved by looking over a legacy of memories, imagine how those images would impact those who have never seen those moments.

Memorial/Prayer Cards

Memorial Prayer Cards are 4.25 inch by 2.5 inch cards adorned on the front with religious figures, a custom photo, or poem on the front. On the back of the card a sincere phrase like “In Loving Memory of” followed by the name of the deceased, their birth and death dates, and brief prayers or poems are printed.

Memorial or Prayer Cards, are commonly set next to the register book for visitors to take as a remembrance of the deceased.  The cards are a way to remind family and visitors of the loved on and recall the special memories they have had.


The flush level or lawn marker is lasting tribute that when completed is countersunk into the ground so that it is level with the ground.

Rental Caskets


From time to time, we receive notices from families wishing to transfer ownership of a grave, niche, or crypt space.  Families may have purchased these spaces years ago and as their family have moved away from the area, these spaces are no longer needed. These spaces are new - meaning the spaces have not been opened or closed for any reason. Tezak's Home to Celebrate Life publishes these notices below.  Should  you be interested, please us and we will contact the family directly.  We simply publish available areas by cemetery location as a courtesy to the families and public we serve.
