Forest Lawn reviews
This was a great and informative tour. There was so much I learned about our area and the people that reside in the cemetery. This is a must do!

We decided to go here since we had a few hours to kill before our flight out if Buffalo. It was worth it. This cemetery is over 200 acres and has a lot of history. Rick James is buried here...but more important historical figures are as well. The monuments are so huge, varied and beautiful. Don't miss the big memorial that has the mother, the father looking down on their son...all marble figures in glass and concrete.
Forest Lawn Cemetery is located in the heart of Buffalo and although in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city, you can't help but feel in the country and at peace when on its grounds. The entire cemetery is well landscaped over rolling hills and scattered with lakes, ponds and a stream. The old time arcticecture and stones is something you just don't find anymore bringing you back in time. When it's time to start looking for a site, you will not find a more professional, caring team then the one at this cemetery. They are extremely fast at getting back to all questions and concerns and work around your schedule as much as possible. When finally meeting in person, they all sit down and listen to your needs and wants. They take you through the grounds and mark specific grave sites that are available. Upon completion, you go back to the main office where you will discuss further options, from payment, to stone types allowed all the way down to how many caskets/urns can be buried in a single plot. At no time do they pressure you and give you as much time as you need to make your decision for your loved ones or yourself. All financing is done in house and can be either paid up front in one single time where you will get 30% off the plot site or over a period of time with 10% down. When looking for a final resting place, look no further then the grounds of Forest Lawn Cemetery.
Our group made a reservation for a trolley tour. It's well worth it. Not only are the grounds beautiful, but the guide was extremely knowledgeable.
I'm standing on a bridge within the cemetery. Looking backwards and looking forward. I know there's a metaphor here, somewhere. The snow ❄️ is steadily coming down and it's cold. I know a lot of people buried here and each time I pay respects, during the grief - I feel it in my heart, reminded of the love that people shared. I'm going to share 3 quotes on death. Years ago, I met the Chilean 🇨🇱 American writer, Isabel Allendé at Klienhans. She said, " Just as when we come into the world, when we die, we are afraid of the unknown. But the fear is something from within us that has nothing to do with reality. Dying is like being born. Just a change". "Death smiles at us all, all a man can do is smile back", Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius. And best for last, "... If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for - he isn't for to live...', Dr Martin Luther King Jr. Have a safe day folks.......
I normally visit cemeteries that are much older than this but this is, by far, the most beautiful. Take a tour. Grab a map from the office and visit the graves of many Buffalo celebrities. Great for walking.
