Monuments

Permanent memorials, headstones and grave markers identify your loved one’s final resting place and provide a physical reminder of the relationship you shared. These monuments create a place to gather in memory of those lost, and to inform future visitors to the site of the lives that were lived. Many families find comfort in the process of designing fitting memorials for those who have passed on and in visiting their chosen monuments throughout the grieving process.

Our monument provider is happy to work with you to create a permanent tribute to the life of your loved one. No matter what you have in mind, any gravestone or larger memorial structure you can dream of can be created for you. If you would like more information, please visit the monument website to place an order or feel free to contact us.


 

Monument Configurations

We offer a number of different monument styles, giving you the opportunity to commemorate your loved one’s life in whatever way feels most appropriate to you. Use the following configuration descriptions as a starting place for the memorial planning process: Monuments

  • Upright Monuments
    Upright monuments include a vertical top portion (known as the “die”) and a horizontal mounting piece (referred to as the “base”). Upright monuments may be designed as both single and double memorials.

  • Flat or Flush Marker
    Flat markers can be constructed of either granite or bronze and lie flat at the head of the gravesite. Flat markers are typically 3-4” thick and can be created in either single or double widths.

  • Bevel Marker
    A bevel marker includes a flat surface that is raised above the burial plot with a slight bevel from front to back. Both individual and companion monuments are available in this configuration.

  • Slant Marker
    Slant markers include a front panel that is slanted away from the burial site, with the rear edge raised higher than the front. The front panels on these markers can be flat, oval or serpentine in shape and can include burial information for one or two plots.

  • Specialty Monuments
    Our monument provider is capable of creating benches, crosses, or other specialty memorials according to your specifications. Please note that your choice of final resting place may dictate the types of monuments that may be used. Contact our office for more information on your chosen grave site or final resting place.

 

Monument Ornamentation

Once you have selected your monument materials and configuration, a number of different ornamentation options exist to allow you to personalize your memorial. Please note that the size and style of your chosen monument may limit the amount of ornamentation you are able to include. Contact our office for more information on the following options:

  • Ornamental Carving
    Our monument provider offers more than 300 images and themes that can be carved into your memorial, either by hand or with the use of a sand-blaster. These images include religious symbols, flowers, birds, sports iconography, frames, and more.

  • Ornamental Etching
    Offering both hand and laser etching allows our monument provider to create finely-detailed drawings that are etched into the finish of your chosen memorial. We are able to offer a wide selection of different etched images or transfer any drawing you provide to your monument.

  • Ornamental Lettering
    Any words to be included on your monument (including the name of the deceased, life dates, quotes, scripture verses, and more) can be stylized using a number of different fonts and carving techniques. Contact our office for a full list of all available options.

We understand that the process of selecting a permanent monument for your loved one can feel overwhelming. Our office is here to assist you in any way possible with your final decision. If there is anything we can do to support you during this time, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
