Please let me know if I can help guide your family through the preplanning process to minimize any unnecessary worries or expenditures.
Preplanning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste and budget.
Peace of Mind
Many who have undergone the emotional strain of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a loved one have made the choice to plan in advance for their own funeral including the monument. Doing so lifts the burden from their loved ones by relieving decision-making pressure at a time of grief and emotional stress.
Ensuring that the necessary funds are set aside helps to relieve yourself of unnecessary future worry and your survivors of any unexpected expenses.
There are various styles of monument choices that can be designed for your loved ones and we will guide you through the process to ensure the quality and significance are captured in the most meaningful way.
While monuments can be made of various stone options, they are generally made of granite offered in various color choices. We offer all traditional monument styles as well as the ability to customize a unique shape giving you the opportunity to create an everlasting tribute that feels most appropriate to you.
We select only the highest grade and quality granite products and a staff of professionals to design, inscribe, and install unique and personalized monuments. Our selection process is made simple by the use of detailed catalogs, computer generated sketches and on location cemetery appointments scheduled at your convenience. All of our products and workmanship come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
The following configurations serve as a starting place and most can either be designed for a single grave plot or family plots that have two graves or more:
Upright Monuments typically include a vertical top portion known as the tablet or die which are mounted on a horizontal piece referred to as the base.
Flush Markers can either be made in granite or bronze, lie flat and are level to the ground.
Hickey Markers can be straight or beveled which are like the flush marker with the exception that these are thicker and sit above the ground. If beveled, it includes a flat surface with a slight bevel from front to back.
Slant Markers look triangular from the side, are slanted and sit above the ground. These can be designed with or without bases.
Specialty Monuments can be designed in the shapes of rugged rock, hearts, shamrocks, crosses, benches and other custom shapes as well as crypts and mausoleums.
Symbols of Love & Respect
Choosing an inscription for your loved one’s monument may be difficult. For as long as people have lived, inscriptions have been engraved on monuments. The practice may differ between cultures, religions and countries however, the reason is the same – to honor the deceased.
Selecting the quote that’s best for your loved one’s memorial is not easy because it is often limited to space and it remains for eternity. Inscriptions typically include the person’s name, date of birth and date of death of the grave it marks. The memorial will also often include a personalized piece of text such as a family message or short phrase, while others place quotations from poems, Bible verses, prayers, their favorite books or movies. Some also use quotes that come from the deceased; while others choose quotes that describe the life they lived and left behind.
Not every monument has a quote inscribed on it, but the ones that do, show much love and respect.
