Finding the Right Words

Monuments and memorials represent what made a person so special — capturing their essence in just a few carefully crafted and chosen words.

Because the amount of space for wording on monuments can be limited, it helps to be concise and to think carefully about the wording you would like to be used.

Consider if your loved one has religious beliefs or maybe has a favorite quote they would want to be remembered by. Song lyrics are also a popular option. Some epitaphs can even be humorous. The options are limitless!
