Gravestones: A Family Guide

It can be so difficult to find a starting point when looking for gravestones and other memorial stones. It is our goal to help shed some light on the process of finding, choosing, and creating gravestones or other monuments. We hope to give you some comfort and confidence in a hard time. Searching for a memorial isn’t easy, and most of us aren't very experienced in the searching process.

The memorial process can begin whenever your family is ready. Don’t feel like you have to rush, or feel pressured to make fast decisions. Instead, you can allow the memorial stone process to be a part of your families healing. Gravestones aren't placed at the time of your loved ones burial, but rather at a later date, when you have had time to grieve. So many families have found that choosing gravestones and going over what to inscribe is in a way, comforting. Looking back on what made your loved one so unique and special, and incorporating those things to honor them on a stone can aid in the healing process.

Finding a quality memorial provider is a great first step in your search for gravestones. In finding a reputable provider, you will also find help in every step of the process. Creating the perfect memorial is an important task. Its important that you find a dealership that feels the same way. You will want a provider that understands your families desires and offers a caring team to aid you through the process. Delphos Granite Works is one such provider. For over four generations, they have had skilled, knowledgeable, and caring staff helping families just like yours. They consider it a great honor to get to create such meaningful pieces of art that will forever represent the memory of your loved one.
