When a loved one dies, their family often has a graveside monument designed for them. This can be a stressful and emotional time. The skilled artisans at a company that makes monuments in Connecticut will gently lead them through the process. The starting point depends upon whether they will have a new memorial or use an existing family memorial. Families may have had a large memorial in a family plot for generations. Artisans can match the lettering style, size and color. They can restore older lettering and clean the entire memorial. Companies that do this work understand that it has to be timely and accurate.
Even when a large family monument exists, individual family members may also have smaller individual memorials. Memorial artists can ensure that it coordinates with the larger stone and still pays the proper tribute. Sometimes cemeteries have design restrictions to ensure that the cemetery has a harmonious appearance. The experienced artists are familiar with local requirements. They will help the family comply with them and still express their individual needs. Family members can choose designs made from granite, marble or bronze. These durable materials ensure that Monuments in Connecticut last for many centuries. Granite and marble monuments are usually gray, black, white or soft pink.
Monuments can be simple rectangles with the name of the deceased and their birth and death dates. They can also contain comments, quotes or poetry. Designs, embellishments or symbols can be etched into the monument. Sometimes the monument will be made in a unique shape. When couples are buried together, a headstone with two hearts can be made. An angel or teddy bear statue is often included with monuments for small children. These embellishments are beautiful works of art. They also provide comfort to loved ones who visit.
