  • Well manicured hedges are planted directly across from a u-shaped columbarium wall in a church courtyard.
  • Two benches made of stone face a columbarium wall just beyond a short row of hedges.
  • A sidewalk made of rectangular stones leads to an open ornate gate that gives access to the memorial courtyard.
  • A short set of stairs outside the courtyard, clad in stone, lead up to the memorial space.
