K & J’s Ice Cream to host benefit for Morgan’s Place Cemetery

SIDNEY — K & J’s Ice Cream will be the location of a Dine-to-Donate on Thursday, Sept. 1. The event is a fundraiser for Morgan’s Place Cemetery. Join the crowd at 130 W. Russell Road in Sidney for an ice cream treat to end the summer.

Morgan’s Place Cemetery is located at 1254 State Route 589, Sidney, and is the vision of Nathan and Mollie Verdier. Morgan is the name of their child that did not survive to birth. In their sorrow and prayers, they felt a calling to create a cemetery for babies such as theirs to be put to rest.

Morgan’s Place will offer assistance in all areas related to the loss of a child. Services will include everything from free burials to counseling with the grieving families. The grounds will also be the home of a memory wall where babies may be remembered from years gone by when the option for burial may not have existed. Morgan’s Place will be a special refuge of peace and will help provide some closure for loved ones experiencing this ordeal.
