Getting Started


A monument is far more than a means of marking the resting place of an individual or a family.

It is a symbol of devotion.  It is a tangible expression of the noblest of all human emotions LOVE.

It should not reflect one’s sorrow, but rather the long years of warmth and affection typical of the American Family.

A monument is built because there was a life not a death; and with intelligent selection and proper guidance should inspire reverence, faith and hope for all the living.

As an essential part of our American way of life, a monument should speak out as a voice from yesterday and today to ages yet unborn.
