Cremation Products

If your loved one chose cremation, perhaps you may be considering some way to honor their memory and comfort those who remain. We offer many ways to permanently commemorate and celebrate a life that is now a precious memory. We have chosen to call these memorials Personal Touchstones. Personal Touchstones are a special way to stay connected even after life ends. You can decide on the Personal Touchstone that expresses the unique, personal remembrance of your loved one.

  • A beautifully crafted urn becomes a Personal Touchstone when chosen with caring attention to meaningful detail.
  • An exquisite granite bench, engraved with their name and perhaps a special verse or saying becomes a Personal Touchstone where one can rest and remember.
  • A natural boulder in a garden setting, a park or other peaceful setting becomes a Personal Touchstone when personalized with the person's name--engraved in the surface or by adding a lovely bronze plaque.
  • A personalized standing monument is a Personal Touchstone placed in a cemetery location.
  • A planted tree or pretty blooming bush with a bronze memory plaque is a Personal Touchstone that expresses the never-ending cycle of life.

Our knowledgeable, caring staff of memorialists is here to offer ideas to help you select, or even design, the Personal Touchstone that will permanently honor your loved one in a personal, meaningful way. The Personal Touchstone--in the form that you choose--is a beautiful way to express your feelings and bring a lasting sense of peace.
