Selecting a memorial is an expression of love and respect for the life of a person. Whether the selection is made by family or friends after a death or as part of a pre-need plan, the memorial is a tribute to the life of an individual and is a source of satisfaction and comfort to those who are left behind to remember.
A monument is personal.
Selecting and designing a personal memorial is a unique opportunity to create a work of art that will express the personality of a special person for generations today and tomorrow. Quincy Memorials will assist you in making the decisions necessary to create this personal memorial.
A monument is history.
Memorials are lasting, genealogical records for families and are a lasting symbol of special lives that are remembered and commemorated. Quincy Memorials can provide ideas on types of symbols, emblems, letter styles and epitaphs that will truly personalize a memorial.
A monument is permanent.
Most personal memorials are manufactured from granite, a hard and durable stone that will last for many years with proper care and maintenance. Granite is available in many colors from the traditional gray granite quarried in Barre, Vermont to various shades of red, pink and black from both domestic and foreign quarries.
A monument is art.
Memorials are available in many shapes from modest to unique and in many finishes from rough hewn to mirror-like polish. Personal preference certainly plays a role in these decisions and they should be made with the assistance of a memorial retailer to assure that the memorial will harmonize with and compliment the landscape and adjacent memorials while still maintaining the personalization of design and shape. Memorials range in size from small single flush markers to large family mausoleums; the most popular being the traditional upright tablet and base. Cemeteries have guidelines and regulations concerning memorial shapes, sizes, colors and installation and it is vital to be aware of these restrictions.
