Maryland Cemetery, Funeral and Cremation Association 10th Annual Holiday Gathering

 

On December 7th, 2017, our advocate, Marilyn Harris-Davis, represented Monument Builders of North America and our MBAdvocacy program, as a Silver Sponsor, at the Maryland Cemetery, Funeral and Cremation Association’s 10th Annual Holiday Gathering. The evening was full of delicious food and great company as MCFCA members, non-members, and guests gathered together to celebrate the holiday season.

Thank you for putting on such a wonderful evening.

During a time and season that has come to be characterized by Black Friday deals and record breaking travel congestion, taking a little time to honor the people that shape our lives can help mend that part of us that is often neglected by the pressures of our workaday culture.

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.

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.
