More information


Memorialization is about making memories permanent. This video portrays the story of a father, a son, and some tender moments that were recorded in stone for the generations to remember.

Stone is polished by hours of work by a skilled craftsman. There is no "coating" that is applied. The beautiful, nearly permanent shine on memorials is created by a series of diamond impregnated pads, water, and a skilled craftsman. If the polishing process is done incorrectly, the stone can overheat causing the stone surface to prematurely crumble.

A scene on a monument can come to life in the thoughts and memories of loved ones. A memorialist (monument builder) can capture your stories in stone so that you and your family can reflect on a life well-lived.
