It all starts with blocks of raw granite hewn from the crust of the earth. Using equipment that is as old as the hammer and chisel or as new a laser-guided diamond saws, granites from all over the world are transformed from rough blocks of stone into permanent records standing silently in cemeteries.
But although the stones seen in the cemetery are silent to our ears, they resound with memories simultaneously happy and sad in the minds of those who visit that special plot. On those pieces of granite are carved names and dates, family information, accomplishments in life, personal interests or hobbies, as well as statements of faith that have guided the lives of the ones there remembered. Those "monuments" as we call them, stand as permanent record of lives lived - however long or short they may have been.
