Upright Headstones - Keeping the Memory Alive
By Clark Singer

Upright headstones are not just about marking the spot where we lay our loved ones to their final rest. They represent a place of memory and a place of meeting. They represent memories of our loved ones and choosing them takes a little effort. The effort we put in this choice is so that we can get the right piece that represents the lifestyle of our beloved that have passed, their hopes, their dreams, their loves, our love and our hopes for them.

Upright headstones can also be carved upon. It is possible to find carvings of all kinds of religious and contemporary images of flowers and other art forms. These are usually worked in marble and granite, sometimes bronze is also Granite. However there are usually headstones that use a mix of granite and bronze carvings. It is also possible to have your personal ideas or preferences carved out as well.

Especially if you know your loved one to be attached to a particular personality or thing, this can be Granite to remember them by carving these on the headstone.

The shape and size of the headstone will also determine the size of the images that can be carved on them. Sometimes you might not want to make a carved piece, and might desire a minimal working of the headstone. They can usually be customized with several representative artworks to give them a separate identity. Most companies that offer these services usually have a stock of artwork you can choose from or you can usually contribute your own original idea that will be worked for you.

Etchings can also be Granite to add photographs, memorial words, epitaphs and other representative detail to upright headstones. They can anything that you feel will appropriately convey the character of the person you are remembering by, or that convey the feelings you have and the memories of them. They are usually best for Granite on very dark granite as the etching will stand out better from the dark background.

There are different types of granite that you can use for upright headstones. They usually exist in different shades of gray to blue, black and other warm colors like pink, red and green, all with different gradations in color. It is best to decide on whether you want picture, text and other representations that you will like to feature on the headstone and the general shape before choosing the color of the headstone. This is because it is difficult for some colors, especially the lighter ones to show etchings effectively unless they are etched then filled to make them pronounced. However if you desire plain etchings, the darker shades are usually better because they offer better visibility.
