Commemorative Brick Ritual

Get Your Loving Tribute “Set In Stone”

The brick pathway along the Healing Garden of Olivia’s House is a place that literally speaks to all who walk there. The names that are engraved in these bricks are not silent.

The Healing Garden is a beautiful area. The bricks visibly honor loved ones, both past and present, and serve as a gentle reminder of how often they are remembered and how much they are loved. Tribute bricks not only serve as a permanent celebration of friends and family, but they also provide building blocks for the future of Olivia’s House. Bricks are donated for all occasions that fill our lives – birthdays, graduations, marriages, holidays, accomplishments, retirements, as well as final tributes. Behind each tribute gift there is a story about courage, loyalty, and love.

There is a brick placement ceremony held at Olivia’s House each spring. Every tribute brick with its personal inscription becomes a part of Olivia’s House when it is placed within our pathway. You are invited to attend and place your own brick or, alternatively, your tribute brick will be placed for you if you cannot attend the ceremony.

Your tribute brick will keep the Garden’s work alive and growing. With a one-hundred dollar minimum donation, your personalized brick will be viewed and enjoyed for years to come. The bricks are a standard size (4 x 8 inches) and can be inscribed with three lines of text (maximum of 14 characters per line). Numbers, spaces, dashes, and punctuation marks count as one character. Wording will appear in all capital letters and will be centered on the brick.
