Have the Talk of a Lifetime encourages families to have conversations about life and what matters most. These discussions can help families make important decisions about how they wish to remember and honor the lives of their loved ones.

Granite is a hard, durable stone that retains its beauty over the course of time. For this reason, granite has been used to honor the dead as well as to pay tribute to great achievements of the living.

Traditional memorialization is beneficial for both the departed and for the family because it honors the deceased’s impact on family and friends while helping the family move forward with the process of grieving and healing. 

Because creating a tribute to a loved one is such a personal process, we choose not to sell our memorials online. Buying a memorial is not like buying a pair of shoes or an airline ticket. It is best conducted face-to-face and heart-to-heart. As North America’s largest memorial manufacturer, owning our own quarries and factories, and employing the finest craftspeople in our industry, Rock of Ages is able to offer you the finest selection of quality granites and the widest assortment of stock designs, as well as unsurpassed in-house custom design services and customer service that is the finest in our industry.

Rock of Ages—more than a name, it’s a commitment to you and your family as solid as rock itself.
