There are so many reasons to love the historic Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum..... the flowers, the trees, the lakes, the fountains, and winding roads that take you on a journey through the history of Cincinnati and beyond. Spring Grove is dotted with graves of Civil War Soldiers, Cincinnati beer barons, ancient mausoleums and so much more. It is rich in history, alive with hope in the new growth and a place of everlasting peace all of which are captured so beautifully in a book entitled, "Beauty in the Grove", by Phillip Nuxhaull.
For me, it is a very special place... it is the place we chose to inter the remains of my son, who died at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. His name is Michael Edward Gould, a 29 year old securities trader @ Cantor Fitzgerald. His gravesite is marked by a black granite bench, etched with the Twin Towers and inscribed with the words, "For Michael and all those who perished on 9/11/2011." Today his gravesite stands as an everlasting of this tragedy and as the official Spring Grove 9/11 Memorial. We must never forget.
Peace and love abound...
