Creating a meaningful memorial is all great way to honor your loved one and feel close to them, so we are proud to offer a full line of markers, monuments and mausoleums. If you want any assistance, suggestions, or want to learn about the memorial products we offer, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our staff.
In our modern society, people aren't given enough time to grieve their losses. The pressures of work, even the simple emotional need to ‘be busy,’ often bring the bereaved back into the ‘real’ world far too soon.
Also, many families are choosing to scatter the cremated remains of their loved one in a favorite place; the ocean, or even in the skies above. While that may seem fitting at the time, it means that you do not have a consistent place to connect with the memories of the person you loved so dearly.
Having such permanent place - in a cemetery, mausoleum, or cremation garden - that can be visited regularly by family and friends is an essential part of the time following a death. It becomes a focal point of memorialization, and gives everyone a special place to go to remember your loved one, or to commemorate important occasions. It can help to make a birthday or anniversary less painful.
A permanent place to reflect on your loved one becomes a way of connecting to a family's past. Visiting the resting place of grandparents or great-grandparents may provide children with an anchor to their personal history. It is a connection to the past, to love shared. It truly honors the relationship you still have – and will always have – with that person.
We offer a full line of markers, monuments and mausoleums. Please ask our staff for details.
Granite Color Selections
Purchasing a memorial is a unique experience. You are making decisions that will endure for generations. Very often, those decisions must represent the varied wishes and opinions of family members. At Holloway Monuments, we can help guide you through the important decisions involved in creating a memorial of everlasting beauty.
Step One - We will determine the requirements and regulations of your cemetery. Many cemeteries have monument size and shape requirements based on the number of graves a family owns. Some cemeteries only allow specific colors of granite, while others require bronze markers. For help finding your cemetery's requirements, please call us at (410) 742-5141.
Step Two - Select the color of granite for the memorial. Granite color varies depending on where it was quarried. We import granite from all over the world and offer a selection of beautiful granite colors from North America. Memorial price depends, in part, on your choice of granite.
Step Three - To make a memorial design your family's personal tribute to a loved one, please consider several important questions:
- What shape of stone do you prefer?
- What design elements should your memorial feature?
- Would you like to inscribe a family saying or religious verse?
- What other personal elements are important for your memorial?
The best way to answer these questions is to visit a showroom and let our designers guide you through the process.
Depending on style and granite color, your memorial can take from six weeks to six months to be made. Popular granite colors and sizes are often already in inventory, so many memorials can be delivered in 8-12 weeks.
At Holloway Monuments we have a selection of over 20 different granite colors. We can special order any granite color of your choice. Below are a few of the more popular granite colors that are available for one to choose from.
One of the most important gifts you can give your loved ones is the gift of planning ahead. You can make the decisions regarding the design of a lasting memorial and have it created to fulfill your dreams and expectations. At Holloway Monuments, we will assist you in designing a memorial, choosing the colors of granite to be used, designating the inscriptions, and pre-paying the costs of the memorial.
By planning ahead, you ensure that you will have the exact memorial that you envisioned. By taking these steps, you can alleviate stress and potential conflicts created when grieving family members are confronted with these decisions.
