Thank you it’s perfect and put in place sooner than I expected which is brilliant as it’s his birthday next week. I will recommend your company to anyone I know who has to get a headstone.
This was a ren0vation and additional inscription.

I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. The headstone is absolutely perfect and what a fantastic job the workmen did erecting it. To say I am pleased with it is an understatement.
Many many thanks.

Went to see headstone. Love it. I did look around before I ordered it, and I still think there is nothing like it in the whole cemetery. Looks very classy with the silver lettering. Please pass on my thanks to those involved. Also, whoever erected it was very considerate to what was already there and replaced items respectfully. Already recommended your company to a lady who saw it and hasn’t had hers done yet. Thank you!
This was a custom memorial.
