Choosing how to memorialize a loved one can be overwhelming, especially as the wealth of choices has grown exponentially in recent years. One of the most heartfelt and beautiful ways of creating a lasting memorial is a personalized memorial stone, specially designed to reflect the personality of your loved one and your undying love for them.
A Personal, Customized Touch
The biggest benefit of personalized memorial stones is that each one is different. As well as including the name and dates of your loved one, you can really add a touch of personality to their stone. Pay tribute to their quirky sense of humor with a favorite quote or saying, or reflect on religion with an inspiring Bible verse. You could show their love of family by listing their beloved children or grandchildren, or show just how much they were loved with a beautiful poem. When it comes to personalized memorial stones, the only limits are space and your imagination!
Give Your Memorial a Modern Twist with a Laser-Etched Stone
Previously, most personalized memorial stones were made through the laborious process of carving letters into stone. Laser-etching is a new, modern option that makes full use of the technology that is now available to us. Etching is usually done on sleek black granite for the best contrast, and perhaps the most exciting part is that with laser-etching, you can easily include an image that reminds you of your loved one’s life. You can choose an image of them surrounded by family, or a calming picture of their favorite place.
There are many options available for those who want to commemorate the life of someone they love, from a traditional stone headstone to a rustic wooden plaque to a beautiful tree over their grave. However, it is certain that a memorial stone is one of the most versatile, personal ways to remember a person and their life.
