What Is A Monument?
A monument is far more than a means of marking the resting place of an individual or a family.
It is a symbol of devotion. It is a tangible expression of the noblest of all human emotions- Love.
It should not reflect sorrow but rather the long years of warmth and affection typical of the American family.
A monument is built because there was a life- not a death;
and with intelligent selection and proper guidance should inspire reverence, faith and hope for the living.
As an essential part of our American way of life,
a monument should speak out as a voice from yesterday and today to ages yet unborn.
