How to Buy a Tombstone
A memorial stone, or a tombstone, is something which can help your loved ones to have a place to visit after your death. Learning how to buy a tombstone isn’t as difficult as it seems.
Tombstones aren’t just pizzas that you can heat up in a jiffy. These grave markers are available to help mark the place where your body has been laid to rest. Loved ones can visit, heckle you, and leave flowers here for you. These markers can be intricate (if your family loved you) or they can be simple (if your family is cheap). If you have a particular tombstone in mind, you might want to consider preplanning your funeral to make sure you get what you want–limerick and all.
Buying a Memorial Stone
You want to shop around for a memorial stone that fits your personality as much as it suits your budget. After all, this is the last physical thing on the earth that will stand up for you and serve as a reminder to your loved ones of how great you were. You might want to talk to funeral homes and cemeteries in your area to see who they recommend for this service. Or you might want to head to the local cemeteries in your area to see whose tombstones you really admit and want for yourself.
These stones will take some time to create, as they need to be carved by a professional artist, so if you want the stone to be up immediately after your death, you will want to get the stone ordered and carved as early as possible. Then, when you die, all they need to do is to carve the date of your death–easy as can be.
In your burial insurance plan, you can signify that you want the stone to be made out of a certain stone–marble, granite, soapstone, etc. And you can also sketch out the design you want, ensuring that your crazy Aunt Fanny doesn’t create a tombstone that looks like something from the circus.
Buying your tombstone now makes sense, as you don’t want your family to have any more decisions to make than they absolutely need. And you know what you want better than anyone else; don’t leave your tombstone in anyone else’s hands. Well, once you’re dead, it doesn’t really matter, but you’re not dead right now. Are you?
