Choose a size
The size of the memorial you want depends on many factors. There are two main categories that people choose from which are – individual or companion. Companion sizes are ideal for couples or families. They can include multiple individual’s names (usually up to two) side by side imprinted with the same last name printed in the middle. You have the option of adding a flat bronze memorial to each gravesite. This brings a cohesive feel and makes it easier for others to recognize for generations. Consider the length of any lyric verses or quotes you would like to use to get a better idea of how big or small you would want the memorial to be.
Add a design such as a photo or a statue
Adding a design will enhance the memorial by adding a special touch to its name. Some people decide to add an image that reminds them of the person deceased, such as a butterfly or dove signifying beauty and living spirit. For the younger deceased, babies and small children’s footprints capture a new life. Depending on your religion, a design such as the holy cross also helps represent the deceased’s strong faith. A statue, such as a guardian angel, is also unique to add next to a monument. Remember that a real-life picture of the individual is highly admired. People usually remember faces, so be sure to choose a recent photo (from the neck up) that shows their best smile. Another great feature that many are using is the Memory Medallion. You are able to add pictures, music and even tell the life story of your loved one. Adding a special vase for upright flowers is an elegant touch to add to your loved ones memorial.
