"We will use the store to support the work done at Oakwood", said Pete Ames. Mr. Ames is the Secretary of the Board of Directors and Chief Researcher for the cemetery. "Some of the items we offer include booklets previously sold only on the grounds", Ames said. "Also we offer nationally published books that include stories of our residents.
