The first meeting with the memorial counsellor is a time to reflect on your loved one’s life, noting personality traits, accomplishments, activities and special memories. You and the counsellor will work together with a “Life Appreciation Guide” that helps you draw out recollections and thoughts. Together you can explore possible symbols that represent important memories and life experiences.
In collaboration with our memorial artists, our design counsellor can help you refine your ideas into a design that will present itself well on a granite memorial.
The ideas discussed will be captured in a rough sketch of the elements you’d like to include. At this stage you will have an opportunity to make revisions and approve the final sketch.
The final development stage of the design process is the review and approval of an exact representation of the finished product. This can be a scale drawing, or for a small additional cost, a full-size drawing. This is your opportunity to make sure you’re satisfied with the design, and lettering styles and placement.
Our skilled artisans follow the final drawing to carve and letter your memorial.
The result - meaningful memories preserved in stone forever!
