to Rome Monument after Carol passed away

for a truly unique and special memorial

they met with a designer talked about

Carol's interests and passions and in

particular about her love of elephants

they showed us a photo of Carol's

favorite porcelain elephant that rested

on her bookshelf and were thrilled when

we told them we could make a granite

sculpture of it resting on top of an

upright memorial just as it rested on

her bookshelf from the photo we made a

sketch then a detailed CAD drawing for

the family's approval the family

selected the granite the color the style

and a truly original and exciting design

then our stone artisans went to work

carving the 3d sculpture out of

high-grade granite and engraving Carol's

personal information on the upright slab

Carol's family now has a very special

Monument that is unlike any other

monument in any other cemetery because

cemeteries are filled with headstones

and monuments that all look just the

same

in fact many are just the same the same

shape size granite color and artwork
