Flat Grave Markers
The Flat Grave Marker is a very common burial stone for many Northern Minnesota residents looking to both, honor their loved one, as well as, maintain a smaller budget to do so. Typically around 2 feet long and 1 foot wide for a single memorial, a flat grave marker can be easily customized to suit almost any story. For a single memorial, your loved ones memorial design will likely have room to add many details above and to the sides of your chosen text. For companion flat grave markers, or grave markers that encompass the stories of 2 or more loved ones, we recommend increasing the length to allow for more space for story telling. With one single memorial telling multiple stories, it is important to meet and design with our experienced memorial staff as we strive to make even the couples that were polar opposite during life, flow and look stunning together in 1 design.
The Slant Memorial was actually one of the very first ventures from the traditional upright tombstone known around the world of grave memorials. A slant memorial will typically be around 16" to 18" tall and span a front face ranging from 2 feet to 3 feet for companion slants. They can be customized much like the flat grave marker but allow for an extra surface on the back to be carved into as well. Slant Memorials can also be set on a granite base to allow for a tapered look and have room for additional granite vases for seasonal flowers. Meeting with one of our staff to review the options is key to building a world class slant memorial for your loved one, reach out today and let's get started crafting your loved ones story in stone.
Heart Upright Memorials
A close design variant of the Upright Monument; a Heart Memorial is simply an Upright Monument specifically cut into a heart shape. With both smooth and rough edges available, you can truly create a unique memorial for a loved one with an equally unique story to tell. Either simetrically upright or laying on its side, the heart memorial design will allow for engraving on both the front and back faces, so you can plan on telling the whole story of your loved one. Available though our custom order process, if a heart memorial is the memorial for you it is best to meet with our design staff immediately to get the unique memorial design process started.
Another Upright variant; the wing memorial comes into play as you begin to mix 2 or more stories of loved ones past together. With each wing of the memorial telling it's own story, you will have more than enough room to tell multiple stories to the fullest. Either connected (pushed together) or separated by a vase or eternal flame, both wings will be set atop a granite base to show the unity of life long connection and to help tie in both or even multiple stories. Like the wings of the angel that had lifted your loved one on to the afterlife, so will these stone versions to help future generations understand and know the story of your loved.
