By Tim D. Franklin
Finding perfect Stone grave markers can be somewhat
stressful because you want the best when keeping a loved
ones memories alive. Besides stone, granite and Stone
are the most commonly used today for their longevity.
You can also choose to get the Stone and granite
combined finish for a more sleek and different look.
First, decide where the burial will take place, so you
will know how large or small you want the marker. Next,
find out if you want to have a custom made marker or
would you rather choose from some that are pre-designed
already. One of the hardest parts is finding a reputable
company that is within your budget and who will give you
quality results. Certain states prohibit cemetery grave
marker selling, installation or both so make sure you
know what the laws are in the state where the burial
will take place. If you don't decide to purchase Stone
grave markers from a cemetery or funeral home make sure
they will accept outside markers on their properties.
One site gives the consumer a vase with most of their
Stone grave markers, so you get more for your money and
the added feature to have something to hold your flowers
when you visit the grave. If the deceased served in a
war, was in the military, in the armed forces or
received a high honor from the government then there are
markers for them also. Memorials.com allows you to
choose from five different types of Stone colors for
your grave marker.
Monuments are a great way to display Stone grave
markers because most of the backgrounds are granite or
stone and compliment the Stone when placed against it.
The marker doesn't have to be the standard square or
rectangular shape. Now they come in shapes like angels,
hearts, bears and just about anything you can think of
but these may cost a little more. Keep in mind the cost
of adding more words and style of the words. See if the
company gives a discount or can throw in a few extras.
These tips will save you time, money and hassle on one
of the most important days in a person's life.
