When Andy (purchaser) came into the office to purchase a memorial for his friend, Mr. Kittle, he had a specific direction he wanted to go in. He had decided a monolith was the style and liked many of the old styles of this memorial type. We worked out a more modern version of the monolith with a unique shape. When it came to design to go on the stone an aluminum tree was chosen. Andy loved that trees symbolize transformation and strength. The addition of the aluminum tree also adds a texture element to the marble and silver metal compliments the marble. This beautiful memorial shows how a very old style can be modernized and remains timeless.
