Memories In Granite

Significance of a Memorial

Why does man desire to erect memorials? What impels him to build monuments? The answer is found in the definition of the very word itself. The root of the English word "monument" derives from the Latin word "monere" which means, "to remind".

A monument, great or small, is the resolute act of perpetuating the memories and the achievements of those who have passed before us. Memorials reflect the positive aspects of life, and for many, serve to promote a healing of grief. It has been said that monuments are not for the dead but serve a meaningful purpose for the living. We believe that to be true.

Call to Order

Choosing a memorial begins with telling a story. We'd like to hear about your loved one's faith and beliefs, family heritage, interests and accomplishments.
