The Nevada Department of Veterans Services appreciates your donation that will help create a Scatter Garden at the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Fernley, Nevada. The scatter garden will be a designated, peaceful and picturesque area on the grounds of the cemetery where loved ones can scatter the ashes of the deceased. According to the National Funeral Directors Association, cremation is becoming an increasingly more popular option. A scatter garden will provide an additional option to honor the deceased. Proponents of a scatter garden say it will allow those who have passed to remain a part of nature within a beautiful environment where the ashes will help sustain the natural beauty.
