What was the response by alumni to the offer of body vaults and niches for cremated remains in Cedar Grove Cemetery?
More than 1,500 people have already completed the proposal’s survey form at cominghome.nd.edu. The administrator in charge says many of the comments have revolved around the thought that in many families the children have scattered to different parts of the country and the parents have retired away from their original hometown. The place they reunite, often, is at Notre Dame, so it’s the ideal place for memorials to family members. If demand appears strong enough, organizers expect to present plans to University Trustees at their meeting in October 2005. If approved, sales could begin immediately with the first entombments possible in late 2006.
