"They say a picture is worth a thousand words and I could not agree more. The marker that I ordered for my brother speaks volumes to all who look at it. You feel as if you knew my brother when you see the images in bronze. It tells a story about my brother and what kind of man he was. Thank you so much." William O'Donnell
