Step 1
Make notes about the person whom the memorial will honor
Make notes about the person whome the memorial will honor

A granite memorial is a visible and lasting symbol of a life lived. It should capture the unique qualities and portray the personality of the person whose life it commemorates. Begin the memorial design process by writing things down that best represent the life of your loved one.

  • What represents their personality and the life he or she lived?
  • What things were most important to them?
  • For what talents, accomplishments or achievements are they best remembered?
  • What hobbies did they enjoy?
  • Where were their favorite places to vacation or spend time with family and friends?
Step 2
