  • Memorial Butterflies
    Butterflies are a symbol of transformation, resurrection, and celebration. These beautiful bronze 5"-6" butterflies are displayed on a Memorial Wall in memory of a loved one.
  • Memorial Trees
    What better way to keep your loved one's memory alive than a living tribute in their name. Your one time donation includes either a sapling or an established tree, provided by the cemetery. 
    A commemorative bronze plaque attached to a granite base adds dignity to a memorial tree.

  • Memorial Bluebird Boxes
    Hand constructed of cypress wood, and placed in the cemetery in a location determined by the cemetery staff, this bird house includes an inscribed memorial plaque.
  • Memorial Benches
    Cremation benches offer a unique style of memorialization.  These Cremation memorials allow a comforting place for reflection and remembrance of loved ones.  All of our granite benches are made with the best quality material.  Cremation benches come in many shapes and sizes, and custom benches can also be designed. Granite benches can be inscribed with a special memorial. Cremation benches are only available in certain sections of select cemeteries.
