A memorial can tell a person's life story in many ways: through the words carved into it, through its location, and through the form it takes. Custom carved memorials are beautiful and unique. They help to capture the story of a lifetime. This video shows brief snippets from the process of carving a custom monument.

Why do we choose to remember? Because remembering is beautiful and ennobling.

A grave marker is one of the only pieces of artwork that an average family will ever buy. These hand-made tributes to the life of a loved one serve many important purposes for a grieving family, but they are also an important permanent record that will tell an individual's story to the generations that follow.
