When Mrs. Mattox mentioned she wanted a church on her monument for her husband, I am not sure she thought so far as to make the whole monument the Church. You see, Leonard and Rose spent their entire life in devotion to their faith. As a pastor, Leonard preached his entire adult life. His passion for his faith was what drove him his entire life. This monument was designed to mimic the small country church that they spent most of their time in. We recreated the steeple with a stainless steel cross on top of the church, the simple wood siding of the church. The front step becomes the sub-base that holds their favorite hymn. The boulder style vases were created to soften the rest of the design. And in the center, you see the Mattoxs holding hands and greeting families at the door as they would be seen every Sunday morning.
