Losing a loved one is a devastating moment. After their death, you can design a beautiful and unique memorial, mausoleum, monument or headstone in Westchester, NY for them.
Polchinski Memorials, Inc., an Independent Authorized Rock of Ages retailer, established in 1883, is a premiere monument and memorial company located in the Westchester area in Hawthorne, NY. Polchinski Memorials has been helping families create highly personalized family memorials, monuments, headstones and mausoleums that are a true reflection of a life well lived.
Once you have decided on the design of the monument, the next task is what you want to inscribe on that monument. It is common to write the name, birth and death date along with Rest in Peace. You can write anything that honors your loved one. These phrases or epitaphs are the final word in any burial and a reflection of one’s personality traits or accomplishments in life.
Inscription is the most difficult task. If you have some idea about what to write, then we can definitely help you. If you are at a loss for words, then we can help you decide what to write.
The following are some ideas for lines or phrases you can include on your loved one’s memorial and monument in Westchester, NY:
Bible Verses: Bible verses are among the most popular sayings to put on a tombstone. For example:
“ ‘Thy remembrance shall endure into all generations.’ (Psalm 102:24)”
“ ‘I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.’ (Philippians 1:3”
There are many bible verses you can pick from that can comfort the mourners for years to come. We, at Polchinski Memorials can help you select the best verse.
Accomplishments: People, who have notable achievements and accomplishments in their life, would like to be remembered by that. Soldiers in famous battles, civil right activists and many others definitely deserve to be remembered by their noble act. You can proudly put it on their gravestone.
Poems: You can write the deceased favorite poems or lines or his/her own last words that reflect his or her philosophy. This type of personalised inscription is very unique and thoughtful in its own way. Poetry and meaningful song lyrics are often deeply personal reflections of someone’s heart.
Humorous: If the deceased had a good sense of humor, and enjoyed making people laugh, then what could be better than a humorous tribute.
