Special Tribute on Mother’s Day
May 12 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
A beautiful way to remember mother’s who have passed.
A strolling group of musicans and other musician’s provides a private serenade to families that are present. After celebrating mother’s during a mornings breakfast or an early lunch, several families start arriving bringing several flower arrangements, wind mills, balloons and gather all together to celebrate their mother’s, grand-mother’s and daughter’s who left their children behind after passing.
It’s a very emotional day here at the park, and music has its magical way to trigger unforgettable memories and allows people to relive moments dear to their heart.

I’m deeply grateful for every little detail La Vista took to make our experience in my dad’s final send off perfect..."We never want to talk about death but it is most certainly something we will face sooner or later. Luckily my parents are of a different mind-set and had taken care of all the final arrangements down the minimal of details, so there was no stress on the days following my dad’s passing. I had just returned home to Texas a few days prior to his passing. La Vista staff contacted me and asked if I would like to use their Hacienda Hall for a family private viewing of my father. At first I was unsure. They suggested I sleep on it. The next day, I said yes. It is a time that I will cherish forever. My husband and I got to visit with my dad one final time before his mass the following day. The Hacienda Hall was absolutely beautiful, cozy, even heavenly, not sad or cold and impersonal like your average funeral viewing rooms. They facilitated a very special final good-by with my dad whom I love dearly. I’m deeply grateful for every little detail La Vista took to make our experience in my dad’s final send off perfect. Thank you for doing what you do."— Valerie Juarez (Pair, Texas)

El equipo de profesionales de La Vista nos ayudo durante estos momentos tan difíciles..."No sabíamos por donde empezar a buscar cuando nos enfrentamos con la perdida inesperada de un familiar. El equipo de profesionales de La Vista nos ayudo durante estos momentos tan difíciles y estamos muy satisfechos con las decisiones que tomamos y fue cuando comparamos con otras personas las experiencias que tuvieron en este tipo de situación que nos dimos cuenta del empeño que pone La Vista."— Marie ( La Jolla, CA)
Their compassion and generosity made our last moments with our loved ones feel beautiful..."My grandfather, father and sister are all laid to rest at La Vista Memorial Park. It is during life’s most difficult times that we must rely on others who have knowledge to help. In my personal experience La Vista has constantly went above and beyond the limits with their superior and excellent service, their compassion and generosity made our last moments with our loved ones feel beautiful. There are no words to express our sincere gratitude during one of the lowest times in our lives. The caring and compassion they showed helped to ease the pain of the entire funeral decision making process each time."— Josie Clark (Bonita, CA)
An integral part of the fabric of our community..."For over a century La Vista Memorial Park was always considered just a cemetery, but now it has become an integral part of the fabric of our community. It has become the place where we all can come to celebrate, individually and as a community, loved ones both present and departed. The Memorial Day and Dia de los Muertos celebrations are indeed highlights that are among those things that have transformed a community necessity into a wonderful community asset!"— The Honorable Ron Morrison (National City)
I am comforted knowing my family will not have to make these decisions on their own..."I only wish I had taken care of my preplanning arrangements earlier... it was so easy and I am comforted knowing my family will not have to make these decisions on their own."— Jim (El Cajon, CA)
It is a pleasure to work hand in hand in a united effort to showcase the founding Kimball family and the history since 1868..."Lady Janice Martinelli and National City Historical Society are eternally grateful to La Vista Memorial Park for their dedication to Historic Preservation. “It is a pleasure to work hand in hand in a united effort to showcase the founding Kimball family and the history since 1868”."— Lady Janice Martinelli (President of the National City Historical Society)
We recommend others to pre-plan their burial arrangements..."We recommend others to pre-plan their burial arrangements. My husband and I have been talking about pre-planning our funeral and burial so our son doesn't have this burden on his shoulder. Through experience, it is very hard on the surviving family members. The hurt is tremendous."— The Nichols Family
This park has it all..."Ocean views to the West, spectacular mountain views to the East and South. This park has it all."— Louise (La Mesa, CA)
The team at La Vista helped us through a very difficult time..."We didn't know where to start when faced with an unexpected loss in our family. The team at La Vista helped us through a very difficult time and we are so pleased with the choices we made. Only after comparing our experiences with others did we realize what a value La Vista provides."— Marie (La Jolla, CA)
The South Bay is fortunate to have business leaders like La Vista..."Who thinks of a cemetery as a key center of a community’s cultural life? Probably no one-unless they know about La Vista. Their efforts to preserve the region’s history; to reach out to military veterans, young and old, and honor their service; and to carry on a proud Mexican tradition with an annual Dia de los Muertos celebration for the entire community. … all set La Vista apart. The South Bay is fortunate to have business leaders like La Vista who appreciate the importance of community service."— Charles Reilly (San Diego)
me siento en paz sabiendo que mi familia no tendrá que tomar este tipo de decisiones..."Como me hubiera gustado haber tomado la decisión de hacer arreglos previos antes...fue tan fácil y me siento en paz sabiendo que mi familia no tendrá que tomar este tipo de decisiones."— Jim (El Cajon, CA)
