They worked to get it ready and installed before a very important date…our anniversary.  I met Randy the day of installation and he couldn’t have been more congenial as I watched his every move.  I will recommend to anyone who needs their service." –R. DeShane

"I just wanted to let you know that we were able to go see Beth's headstone in person and it is absolutely beautiful!  It surpassed our expectations of what it was to look like. We were so impressed by the detail that your company put into it, especially the polished base that the stone sits on. We have never seen that done before.  Nick wanted something unique and special and he got exactly what he wanted to honor his beautiful bride's memory. We would gladly recommend your company to anyone who was looking for a headstone for their loved one. Thank you again, Polly, for working so hard to help Nick get the design he was looking for. He needed tender guidance during this difficult time in his life and we are so grateful for your help." – R. DeCarlo
