A Memorial Guide
When thinking about cemeteries, the monument is always the first visual that comes to mind.
A monument is that final tribute to the life and times of your deceased loved one. Monuments can be known by many names such as a headstone, tombstone, or gravestone. A monument stands upright at the head of the grave. In most cases, it has the deceased's name, date of birth, and date of death inscribed on it, along with a personal message, or prayer, and can have different imagery or symbols.
Each monument can tell a story of the life of the deceased by sharing their passions, such as gardening, skiing, hockey playing, or the professional affiliations including post nominals or organizations symbols.
