Each monument should be as special as the person it memorializes and as unique as the life they lived.
Monuments present different meanings and emotions for each of us. Their purpose is not just to mark a burial site but to also tell a story. They offer us important information. They help surviving loved ones cope with loss and honour those that have gone before us. They offer a stylized point that helps us focus our memories. Monuments can be simple and understated or elaborate and detailed. Regardless of the style, they are an expression of character and art. The beauty we find in a monument is ultimately an expression of the personality they are intended to memorialize. Regardless of your choice of memorialization, a monumental life is worth remembering.
