Don’t hurry the creation of a memorial plaque since it recounts the tale of a life that has been lived. When building a monument for a loved one who has passed away, we often consider the following three factors:
- Date of birth is required.
- The death occurred on the following date
I’ve worked with hundreds of families to create monuments. Some sessions were completed in fifteen minutes, while others took many hours. Neither situation is correct or incorrect. This is a personal aspect of the grieving process that is unique to each individual, just as their connection with the departed was.
According to the style of the memorial and the size of the area available for inscription, the quantity of information that may be shown on the memorial will vary. However, I recommend that this consideration be included in the design, even if just a little amount of room is available. Oftentimes, when buying a monument, you may not be aware of the many alternatives available, which include images, emblems, words of adoration, sculptured portraits, autographs, epitaphs, colors, styles, borders, and other embellishments, among others.
Make the process of designing your cemetery plaques a memorable occasion since you are creating a lasting legacy that will be set in stone (bronze, granite, or marble). Although many people who did not directly know the dead will read the tale told in this tribute, it will be read for years to come by others who did not personally know the deceased. A memorial is a representation of a life lived, no matter how brief or lengthy it was. The dash between the dates of birth and death is just as essential as the dates themselves, as numerous poetry, novels, and songs have suggested.
Here are some considerations to keep in mind while creating a memorial (plaque) to honor the memory of a dead loved one:
Make an appointment with the person who will be assisting you with the order so that you will not be hurried through the process.
Discuss your loved one’s hobbies, interests, and professional and social ties, as well as his or her work.
Decide on the kind of memorial you want to buy.
There are so many possibilities accessible today.
Check with the cemetery to see if there are any regulations or limitations in place, particularly if you are buying a monument from a seller outside the cemetery.
As for customizing, request to view all of your possibilities, including but not limited to: emblems and styles; colors; granite hues; writing styles; cameo pictures; sculptured portraits; epitaphs; and so forth
If you’ve included anything more than the bare essentials in your purchase, you should request proof before the memorial is finalized.
Consult with a cemetery representative about their stance on upkeep, maintenance, and damage restoration.
If you are unfamiliar with the process of making a memorial, or if the amount of information is overwhelming, several internet sites provide samples of memorial types and designs to help you get started. Take pleasure in the process of establishing a lasting legacy for your loved one that will be passed down to future generations.
