Cemetery Bronze Grave Markers come in many Designs and Sizes
The loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult events imaginable. Whether the loss is expected or not, it can certainly seem all but bearable, and the grief that ensues is only reflected by the amount of love we feel for them. Moreover, families are often confronted with what seems like a million plans and arrangements at once, especially shortly after the loss. While that is so, one of the arrangements that the family can, and should approach with time is that of creating a final tribute to their dearly departed. There is no doubt that everyone mourns differently, but many can agree that the process of creating a tribute can help, in that through this process, we not only honor the life and memory of the lost individual, but also provide ourselves a place in which to pay our respects to them. With that said, bronze plaques have long since been sought after to create elegant and resilient memorial tributes, and for good reason.
Bronze is a very durable material, whose strength is only matched by its aesthetic beauty. This wonderful metal is composed of a variety of different metal ores, such as tin, zinc, lead, copper, and others. When combined, these materials create a durable metal that features a warm, almost golden tone. One of the most sought after features, however, is the appearance of the bronze when it has been weathered by the elements and time. In time, these elegant pieces change from the warm, golden tone to a deep, rustic brown that boasts hints of reddish brown and green patina. This appearance is so sought after, in fact, that many artisans actually chemically weather the bronze, to reach the same, and desired, effect.
Bronze plaques are crafted to the highest of standards to capture, and share, the memory of lost loved one with not only everyone around, but also through the ages. These wonderful plaques feature a vast variety of designs that unlike traditional memorials, feature breathtaking and highly personalized images. These designs range from a simple garden and hummingbird scene, to an individual golfing, skiing, or swimming, just to name a few. Also features are a variety of landscape and animal themes, to help capture the spirit and energy of those who truly had a 'wild side'. While these wonderful pieces are elegant and durable enough to be set as grave markers, many families utilize them in public and private areas. For example, if the plaque was being used to commemorate a lost individual for a large amount of volunteer work preformed for a certain organization, this type of plaque would be very appropriate. We have even had families who coordinated with their cemeteries to have the plaque placed as the official grave marker for their loved one. While this is possible, it is up to the family ordering the plaque to make the necessary arrangements with the cemetery, to utilize the plaque for this purpose.
Bronze has long since been sought after, for its strength, durability, and not to mention its beauty. It only stands to reason that this same material can be used to create unforgettable memorial tributes to celebrate life in a way that, just like our love, will persevere through the ages.
"After the passing of our daughter we were shocked at the prices we were quoted at the cemetery. We began shopping around online and came to memorials.com, everyone here was so helpful. We picked our design online and then we called and spoke to a very helpful woman about our payment arrangements. They were very professional and courteous. Even after our cemetery returned the design with their list of changes which cost us an additional $300 memorials.com gave us the opportunity to get the extra money in order while they designed the headstone. We were able to approve the layout and pay the additional money on the same day so there was no additional time in getting our headstone.
I called and spoke with someone on 3 different occasions and never once sat on hold or spoke to a machine. In a time of great loss memorials.com was nothing but a great help.
We ended up saving over $1,000 on the headstone even with the additional charges tacked on by the cemetery. We could never thank you enough. " Jennifer Garrett
