The redesign of the church’s prayer garden, which surrounds its columbarium, is being done in memory of Mark Smith’s late wife, Sherry Smith, who died unexpectedly on Jan. 5. The new garden will feature some existing trees, new sidewalks and flowers and a new pergola that will provide shade for visitors to the columbarium.
