Dear Call the Name partners,

We have received notice of four burials on Thursday, June 15, 2023, starting at 9:00 a.m.

We will be present with the following individuals as they are laid to rest:

  • Ms. Tina Rusak at 9:00 a.m.
  • Mr. John Mulkey at 9:15 a.m.
  • Mr. James Bowen II at 9:30 a.m.
  • Mr. Homer Black at 9:45 a.m.

In recent weeks we have seen fewer folks respond to the call for the ministry of presence at these burials. While we have seen several faithful participants for whom we are grateful, we would love to welcome others to offer respect and dignity for those being laid to rest. Since March, we have averaged 4-5 burials per week and see no signs of a slow down. We very much need the community of clergy and concerned neighbors to help with our mission of remembering our neighbors on behalf of all who may have known and loved them. 

We prefer to have at least two representatives present at these burials, but are happy for any and all who are able to come. Very often our friends are delivered to the cemetery early, so we encourage all to be present at least 15 minutes before the first service.

If you are available please click here to sign up or  email me at or text me at 615-310-6530.

All burials are at Hills of Calvary Memorial Park located at 4411 Ashland City Highway, Nashville, TN 37218. We request that participants arrive 10-15 minutes before the first burial.
