I was at the cemetery yesterday and the monument looks so good.

Thank you, you did everything just the way we wanted.

Our Services

We are proud of the quality of service we are able to offer our customers. Our pricing for each monument includes the following:

  • Granite padComputer designed layouts for every monument sold are developed by us and pre-approved by each client before lettering begins.
  • Lettering includes inscriptions (names and dates), family name front and back, wedding date, and decorative corner carvings.
  • Setting the monument, which includes a solid 42" deep concrete footing underneath the pad for stability.  Above the footing Family name on front & backwe use a granite pad, which is flush with the ground to prevent damage to the monument and its base by machinery. We use granite, unlike some other companies that use concrete, because concrete eventually deteriorates.
We also offer several popular extras:
  • Laser etchings, such as a person's or other picture
  • Freehand Diamond Etching, which is artwork done freehand on the monument
  • Epitaphs, such as "Forever in Our Hearts"
  • Children's names
Laser etching of a photo Decorative corner carving Freehand diamond etching & epitaph
