When Phillips mother came in to begin the process to purchase her sons memorial, she was concerned about not being able to get a nice memorial due to her budget. She described Phillip as always being outside, hiking, and an adventurer that never left his dog’s side. That dog was his child and best friend. We were able to put together a memorial that conveyed all these aspects of Phillips life, giving her a unique memorial within her budget. The memorial shows Phillip beside his dog, looking into the sunset. The rugged sides and outdoor scene help convey his joy in all things outdoors. Even small memorials and tight budgets can have (and deserve) good design!
