Classic Headstones and Grave Markers which are Standing in Cemeteries
Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences that we must all face in our lifetimes. Following the passing of the loved one, many decisions must be made regarding the funeral arrangements, among other matters. After the loved one has been interred, for those who participate in traditional burial of the body or cremation ashes, a memorial marker must be set to mark the area where the person was lain to rest. What many do not realize is that they have some time after the interment, before having to decide on what to place on the grave. In fact, it is actually quite common for families to wait a few weeks, and even months, before placing the final remembrance of the dearly departed. This is a great benefit in that the memorial that is to be placed is going to be there for all time, so it is very wise to see what options are available, as well as taking time to decide on the final information to be placed on the memorial.
Our selection of standing headstones offers a variety of memorials that will create wonderful and dignified final remembrances. The shapes of the monuments this section offers range from beautiful and traditional, to elegant and modern, and some mix the best of both worlds. These headstones feature breathtaking designs as well, ranging from a open book, to simple designs featuring exquisitely shaped details, and even the basic shapes that adhere to the traditional design of upright markers. The granite selection offered ensures that the stone will be as beautiful as it is durable, and there are a large number of granite colors to select from. Any of the designs can be customized to feature the information for an individual, or two, or even more people for those who have a family plot. The addition of a flower vase will add the perfect final touch to any memorial, for those that don't have the vase incorporated into the design already. The number of design and personalization options ensure that the final memorial will not only be beautiful, but will also adequately reflect the lives of the individuals they pay tribute to.
As said before, the loss of a loved one is a very trying event in our lives, and the grief caused by such a tragic event is truly profound, and especially at the onset, can be difficult to console. One of the greatest steps a family can take to bring comfort to their hearts and minds is to create a permanent place for them to visit and pay respects to the dearly departed in. A beautiful standing headstone can create an area of peace and meditation, and many families are often surprised to discover how comforting, and even therapeutic, it can be to create a tribute for a loved one, as they know the selections will be a dignified and appropriate final remembrance that can be visited for many generations to come.
