For grave markers and monuments placed in a cemetery prior to a loved one passing, a final date will need to be engraved after their passing. This is common when the memorial includes more than one name, a husband and wife for example, when only one has passed. The other spouse’s final date will need to be added to the grave marker.
Stone and metal monuments require periodic maintenance to keep them in perfect condition. This may include leveling as the ground settles or as wind or other types of weather cause monuments to lean. If chipping or other damage has occurred our staff will repair the grave marker, repaint any text or designs, and cleaning to keep the monument appearance as beautiful as possible.
