About These Websites

The web sites, , and were created by me, Lance Hamilton, formerly employed as a licensed Family Service Director and Advanced Planning Counselor at Los Fatos memorial Park.  I created these web sites, in part, because the park had (and has) no official web sites. Though I no longer work for Los Gatos Memorial Park I am happy to serve you with these sites showing many beautiful pictures I took of of Los Gatos Memorial Park.

If you need to contact Los Gatos Memorial Park please call them at 408.356.4151.

  Keiko Kagawa-Hamilton performing at the Otsuka's Independence Day Party, 2005

My wife Keiko is a Japanese born & educated lyric-soprano.  Check back soon for a video clip of her singing the American "National Anthem" at Los Gatos Memorial Park's "Memorial Day 2005" commemoration.  Though a resident of the U.S. since 1984, Keiko did not become a U.S. citizen until late in in 2004.  So, as a new citizen, her first performance ever of the National Anthem was especially heartfelt and emotion-filled.  Keiko also performed at our "Tree of Remembrance" holiday gathering in our "Reflection Chapel."

(This picture is from her performing at a July 4th celebration in Cupertino.)

This illustrates the importance of choosing an endowment care cemetery such as Los Gatos Memorial Park.   As such, even after our park is full it will receive perpetual care, using the income earned on money set aside in a special "endowment care" trust fund.
