Our latest Gill Brothers Funeral news, trends and events. Be sure to check back often for updates.
Many families are putting off funeral services for weeks - and even months. Daniel McGraw of Gill Brothers Chapels talks in the Minneapolis StarTribune about how funeral services are often being planned around the deceased wishes, children in school, travel times, and vacations.
Many of Minneapolis' most noteworthy cemeteries were originally built to be a drive (or, at least, a horse-ride) away. Now, these cemeteries are our neighbors. And, they are worth a visit.
Lakewood Cemetery is one of the most noteworthy of these cemeteries. Originally built to provide the dead with spectacular views of Lake Harriet and Lake Calhoun, it is now surrounded by South Minneapolis homes that were built to be near these same views. Just down the street, then, is the boisterous Calhoun Square.
