When Jimi Hendrix's father James 'Al' Hendrix set out to create the Jimi Hendrix Memorial, he clearly defined his vision of the project when he said, "I hope that in the years to come, both my family and Jimi's fans will find peace, remembrance, and inspiration from this memorial." Mr. Hendrix was widely recognized for his deep affection for all those around him and he always had a special place in his heart for animals. Kindness, honor and loyalty were among his best characteristics. His is a spirit that will be truly missed yet his deeds will live on. Not trying to upstage previous memorial efforts created by people around the world in the past, Al Hendrix explained, "I shall continue to embrace all of the other tributes to Jimi throughout the world, but I hope that the memorial project at Greenwood Cemetery will come to be seen as my legacy to Jimi and my family."

While the finishing touches on the Jimi Hendrix Memorial are currently underway at the cemetery, the Hendrix family invites fans of all ages from around the world to come and pay their respects to passed loved ones.
