Choosing a monument, memorial or marker to honor a loved one should be carefully thoughtout beforehand. There are many things to consider.
To begin with, the cemetery you choose may or will have certain gravesite regulations that will affect what you can and cannot do. We will contact your cemetery for you to learn of their their regulations, so we can advise and guide you properly in your selection regarding your compliance with these regulations.
Once a cemetery or memorial garden has been chosen, there is a seemingly endless choice of monument options available to you, and we can show you examples of them. A good way to begin the design process is to think about the story you would like to tell about your loved one. Some details that are often very important:
Your loved one was unique. With this in mind, we can begin creating a memorial that is as one of a kind as he or she was.
We can help you choose the monument type, stone color, size and shape that will best tell their story for generations to come. A fine etching or permanent photo of your loved one or an etching of a favorite scene or hobby they loved can also be depicted.
Another important element is the selection of an Epitaph or Verse. This can be a simple and elegant touch – to be read and reflected on by future generations.
We will guide and assist you through the entire process. It’s our experience, care and attention to detail that sets us apart. Our best advice is to take your time – don’t rush – and allow the ideas and process to flow naturally. Often, simplicity is the key to a very beautiful, inspiring monument. Whatever you decide, we will help you create a loving memorial that your family will cherish and love forever.
There are many different finishes available on our granite monuments and markers. All flat markers, bevel markers, and slant monuments have a polished face. Upright monuments are polished on the front and back. All bases are polished on the top. You may choose to have more sides or the entire marker polished at an additional charge. Visible surfaces that are not polished are rock pitched. The bottom of all markers are usually sawed since they are not visible.
There are a wide variety of tops and ends available. However, if you want a memorial with tops and ends that are different or unusual, those designs will usually be more expensive.
