A monument commemorates the life that was lived. Memorials reflect the personality, hopes and dreams of those they represent. Double monuments show the love and dedication two people shared. Single markers reflect the individual’s accomplishments.
Monuments come in numerous shapes and sizes. They are made of many different materials including various types of granite, marble, and bronze. The shapes can vary from small low markers to large custom shaped structures. There are memorial benches and bronze plates of various sizes.
The designs reflect the life that was lived. The designs remind the survivors of who the person was by representing aspects of their lives. Did they like flowers? What hobbies did they enjoy? What was his occupation? Where did she like to travel? Roses may signify love or the love of flowers and gardening. Wheat may represent the prairies or farming or the continuation of life. Designs may be selected from our full selection of previously prepared designs or the artwork can be completely designed and personalized to your specifications.
Monuments are for future generations, they are a record of our past. They are for our grandchildren and their grandchildren. Monuments are for life.
Today’s monuments are made of materials that have proven to last the test of time. Bronze artifacts have been found that are thousands of years old and granite is as majestic and long lasting as the mountains. These materials can be molded, shaped, and formed into a lasting work of art. Their beauty and un-yielding nature provides a sustaining source of comfort.
Monuments and cemeteries record our heritage and provide solace and sanctuary to the living. The dedication of a memorial is the recognition of our past and a representation of people’s traits, hopes, wishes, loves and desires.
