Choosing Your Headstone

A headstone is so much more than a piece of granite. As a sign of devotion, it marks a loved one's earthly resting place. It should not be considered a symbol of sorrow, but a symbol of love, warmth, and affection.

We help our customers understand all of the options and possibilities available for meeting their needs. We will assist you every step of the way with memorial types, granite colors, epitaphs, or individualized etchings and portraits.

In addition, a computer drawing is provided to our customers for their approval to ensure customer satisfaction. We also have you approve the stencil used in production in person or by photo.

A mausoleum is an above-ground building that holds the entombed remains of loved ones. They are a wonderful way to pay tribute to family members who have passed on.

There are indoor and outdoor options available and we offer single, companion, and family mausoleums.
