It has often been said that monument builders tell stories in stone. This is the second video in a three video series that shows how a good monument builder can tell a story in stone.

If you were given only a few square feet on which to tell your whole life story, what would you say? What events, and memories would you include? What would you want your great, great grandchildren to know about you? Pre-need memorials give you the chance to make important decisions about the story of your life.

Enrich your holiday season by honoring the people that have shaped your life.
