Testimonial from Pat: I looked at this on our homepage for years, and finally signed up. I had not realized how easy it was, and how much money the FOMH could earn if our members and Friends signed up. Please help us restore stones by using this option when you shop at Amazon! And tell others as well.
CARLO, the beloved mascot of the FOMH, has come out of the corner!
Come a bit early for your next tour and check out his updated space. Carlo loves visitors, especially cemetery lovers!
