Whose book are you writing today?

John Albers,
Plant Manager
When I was a young boy, I grew up in a small, traditional town with only one cemetery. A majority of the burials were traditional and the headstones or memorials were as well. Occasionally, a family would include a small photo of their loved one under glass, embedded in the stone. Those were the memorials that really caught my eye when visiting family or friends. The photo helped tell the story of the person’s life. It gave visitors a glimpse of who they were.

Since joining the Trigard team, I have learned so much about the importance of permanent memorialization. When we combine the family’s love and our designer’s talents with our unique process of transferring 3D images onto bronze, we help family’s tell their loved one’s story and continue their legacy.

I see dozens of finished memorials, plaques and signs each day, and the impact our product has still amazes me. I encourage you to continue helping families heal by creating permanent memorials. When we help them tell their stories and think back on their memories, we help carry them through some tough times. And, when we create a custom memorial for a family, it becomes more than a piece of bronze, it becomes their storybook.
