A monument designed to represent the lives of a married couple or two or more people is called a companion memorial. The story of both individuals is represented on a single granite stone. Many times, in addition to the historical information of name, birth and death, reference is made to children, anniversaries, favorite expressions and even inspirational verses. Ornate graphic backgrounds and photos can also provide a special way of representing loved one's stories and personal legacy.


A memorial created to represent the life of a single person is called an individual memorial. Telling the story of how a person lived their lives through treasured memories, celebrated moments and personal passions become a part of the memorial creative design process. Technology today offers many expressive options in designing a memorial that truly represents the gifts and memories of your loved one.
