Gravestones: A Custom Memorial

Gravestones can be customized in just about any way you can imagine, and that’s what makes them such a special memorial. If you are looking for a memorial stone, it’s because a loved one left a very unique imprint in your life, and you want to memorialize that. Just like that loved one was one of a kind, we believe their memorial should be, too. Custom gravestones are a great way to express who they were and what they have meant to so many others around them.

Finding Quality Headstones

Searching for quality headstones can be overwhelming if you aren't sure where to look, or truly, even what you are looking for. Headstones come in such a wide variety of colors, styles, sizes and even vary in the material they are constructed from. The most common found gravestones today are constructed from granite, and deciding on a provider can still be a challenge. There are plenty of options available, both local and online, but how do you find a real quality memorial dealership?

Grave Markers: A Great Economic Option

Losing a loved one is never easy, and we know it can come with other unexpected costs that may not have been prepared for. The cost of funeral arrangements and other memorial expenses can add up, if it wasn’t planned for. Some families are able to plan ahead, and prepare, while others may not have that option, and that’s okay. No matter what the circumstances, we believe every person deserves to be memorialized. For those who might be feeling like a memorial stone isn’t an option, grave markers and bevels might be the perfect solution.

It can be hard to find a way to memorialize your loved one who has passed away if that family member was cremated. Though there is nothing wrong with cremation, it can leave family members with a feeling that there is more to be done. Celebrating their life with a granite bench memorial is a great way to recognize and honor what they meant to you, and undoubtedly, many others. In addition, a granite bench memorial can also aid in the healing process. The tradition of a burial, has helped many families to feel a sense of closure. In a sense, it allows the loved one who is grieving the opportunity to move forward.

Cemetery Headstone Provider Checklist

Finding a cemetery headstone provider isn’t exactly a common task. Most people will only do it once in their lives, unless they had a bad experience the first time. You might be wondering what to look for in a quality and trustworthy memorial provider. While every family is different, and may appreciate one quality over another, we believe there are 3 basic principles every dealership should possess.

Memorial Headstones Highlighting the Past

Memorial headstones have a beautiful way of highlighting the best parts of the past, or someone's life. Have you ever stopped and taken the time, while walking through a cemetery to read a memorial's inscriptions? If you haven't, there is much inspiration to be drawn from there. We have no way of knowing what might be written on our own memorials someday, but we can strive to live like those words that will be written there.

Headstones: Buying Local VS Buying Online

It can be hard to know what to expect when you begin the search for headstones, or other memorials. That’s because, likely, you haven't purchased or even looked for headstones before. Walking through a cemetery, you wouldn’t know what work is behind all those beautiful grave markers. Many may not even realize all that goes into the creation of a monument, or what a reputable dealer will provide in their services. A memorial is a big deal, so it’s important to know what to expect when purchasing both from a local monument provider, and also if purchasing online.

Gravestones Remaining Timeless

Not many things in this life remain timeless, but quality gravestones seem to hold the title. Have you ever taken the time to notice, that not too many changes in the area of gravestones and monuments? You can see in recent years, the style has evolved a little, but traditional grave markers seem to always retain their charm. Their timeless beauty and tradition seem to live on from generation to generation.

Grave Markers: An overview for purchasing

Bevels, uprights, wedges, headstones, gravestones, monuments...they all fall under one common name... Grave Markers. Today, there are plenty of options for families looking for a memorial stone for a loved one. With so many options available, some may find it a little overwhelming, so we aim to help give a quick overview of what families might expect while shopping for grave markers.

Choices: Granite Bench Memorial... or a Headstone

When you think of a granite Bench Memorial, you probably think of a beautiful piece of art, made to memorialize someone who impacted the lives of those around them. Maybe placed in a local park, or in front of a museum, or a church yard. All of these are wonderful options, but did you know, many families are opting to erect a granite bench memorial, in place of a headstone? This isn’t the traditional grave marker, but can be both beautiful and practical.
