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 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 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.
The individual Grass Marker is used to identify individual burial plots and is used in association with a Family Monument. The Grass marker sets flush with the ground (see illustration).
The Double Flush Marker (below) is used for two grave burial plots for husband and wife, side by side, embracing the burial plots.
On all of our monuments, you can choose from stock art selections or customized design. We also offer vases (below), lettering/etching, cleaning, corner markers, pet markers and yard stones.
Bevel Top Hickey Markers
The Bevel Top Hickey Marker is raised above ground, and is used to identify individual burial plots, and in association with a Family Monument.
The Double Hickey Marker is used for two grave burial plots for husband and wife, side by side, embracing the burial plots.
Slant Face Markers
Slant Face Markers sit above the ground. They are available in Single, Double and Western styles -- depending on the burial plots.
Double Slant Face Markers (see photo below - on a base) are preferred by some as a family monument to identify the family plot.
Western Style Slant Face Markers (example below - on a base) are used the same as the Slant Face Marker. The Western Style Slant has no front nosing.
Below are examples of custom designs -- please call or email us with any questions you may have on a customized marker.
