Since before recorded history people have left monuments to mark their own years on earth and to commemorate the lives of loved ones. Monuments fill basic human needs, express grief and love to remember and to be remembered. The names, dates and personal inscriptions are meant to maintain our identity and family history to link past with future generations. Unlike other things we buy, monuments are something most of us know little about so it’s easy to feel at a disadvantage when selecting one.
Since a memorial is a one-time purchase it should be built with permanence in mind, and because we are known and trusted for building memorials that last, we carve the design and lettering without the use of additives like paints and dyes which as anyone knows, will always fade and wear away with time. Monuments don’t’ have to fade, the difference is workmanship. We know how to build quality monuments to keep family links legible and alive forever.
Choosing a memorial begins with telling a story. We’d like to hear about your loved one’s family heritage, interests, passions, accomplishments, faiths and beliefs. With this information, we can help design your memorial and help you choose the type of memorial based on cemetery regulations, granite colour, size and shape that will help best tell your loved one’s story for the generations to come. One of our caring professionals can help guide you in building a tribute that is not only appreciated by the eye but understood by the heart. You won’t feel pressured into buying a “floor model” here at Kirkpatrick Stoneworks because we prefer to take your thoughts and ideas and create a simple elegant memorial or we can create something truly unique and personalized – the choice is yours. We understand the importance of remembering and look forward to guiding you through the process.

I wanted to touch base with you and let you know how pleased we are with how the angel turned out on the stone. They did an amazing job. Thank you for being so accommodating and easy to work with. You knew how much we wanted that particular sketch and made sure it happened and we are very grateful.
I just yesterday travelled to see my mother’s monument. It was a thrill to see how the granite had perfectly captured the essence of Mom, and her love of nature and life! I wish to thank all involved at Kirkpatrick, from the artwork through to completion of this beautiful piece of sculpture. It was a positive experience start to finish, and shows just what can happen if you dare to dream.
I would like to give you a special thank you for all your help regarding the addition to the stone. I’m so very pleased.
I went to the cemetery Friday and you made my day.
