Sharing stories with those who matter most isn’t just important today; it will be especially significant when it’s time to commemorate a life. These discussions can help families make important decisions about how they wish to remember and honor the lives of their loved ones.

Granite is a hard, durable stone that retains its beauty over the course of time. For this reason, granite has been used to honor the dead as well as to pay tribute to great achievements of the living.

Traditional memorialization is beneficial for both the departed and for the family because it honors the deceased’s impact on family and friends while helping the family move forward with the process of grieving and healing.

Because creating a tribute to a loved one is such a personal process, we choose not to sell our memorials online. Buying a memorial is not like buying a pair of Jeans or Movie Tickets.

Common Monument Style Options

Flat Marker

Bevel Marker

Slant (with or without Base)
Monument styles include Die & Base, Tablet, Slant, and Marker. The Marker style is available in three varieties including flush, bevel, and pet sized

Flush: Flat Marker Flush to the ground
Flush Markers often give a cemetery a consistent appearance. Flush markers make it easier to mow grass and care for the property. Lawnmowers may run over flowers, vases, or personal items left at the grave. These Markers can get overgrown with grass and do need to be trimmed after several years. You need to be standing over it to read it, making it difficult to find a grave.

Bevel (Hickey): Flat marker that sits on top of ground
A beveled marker sits on top of the ground, generally 8”-10” above it. They are easier to see than flush markers. The slight bevel to the top makes it easier to read and will stay clean longer than a flat marker. They can be modified to be able to receive cremation remains. You need to be within 5 to 10 feet to read the marker making it hard to find.

Pet Marker
A Companion Marker for the four-legged Family Member in your life. Can either be above or flush with the ground.

Slant Memorial; with or without a base
These memorials provide a large design area for more information and bigger letters on the face of the memorial. Due to upright position it can be read from a greater distance and stays cleaner than flush or bevel markers. A Veteran's bronze service plaque can be affixed to the back upon the Family’s wishes. By adding a 6” to 8” base you gain extra height for visibility and lawnmower protection. A 8" base can also be cored to receive cremated remains. While the family name, children's names, or other information can be placed on the back it may limit the ability to mount the Veteran's bronze plaque.

Many other styles are available as well, including heart and angel shaped monuments. Contact Comolli Granite and we will assist you in selecting the ideal memorial for your loved one.
