Renovations / Additional Lettering
Although monuments are made of of the most durable materials (granite/marble), there is a possibility of needing repairs as the years go by.
BeforeThis monument was in a neglected state for a while, until the respected owner discovered its existence and decided to respectfully restore it.
AfterA new headstone with a completely new style of inscription was chosen in place of an old, cracking piece of granite.
