I was in Tracy yesterday and noticed that you put the family name on
the back of my mother's tombstone. I just wanted to say THANK YOU for
following up on that detail and making this stone an absolutely
perfect way to honor my mother!!

Thanks again and hope you are well!


Dear Charlie,

(thank you for a sculpture piece we helped carve in Nashville Tn. For Hunt Memorials of Nashville.
There's been quite the parade of folks heading to Mt. Hope to see Caroline's marker. Pictures of it are circulating widely as well, and the reactions are the same as mine. I keep hearing the words "joyful", "lively", "happy", "it makes me smile". My five-year-old friend Natalie was so happy that it's pink. The sister who gave Caroline the glass sculpture told me she never imagined you could capture the joy and movement of that little figure in stone. I think the word "genius" has surfaced more than once.
Doug and I are pleased beyond words with the marker, and the timing couldn't have been better. My sister hung a wreath of roses on its head for the 2nd anniversary of Caroline's death. It is everything we hoped for and more. It will make people smile, those who knew Caroline and those who didn't, for years to come. Thank you so much.


Hi Bev,

Sorry I haven't called you but we've been on vacation. I just wanted to let you know that the whole family did go to the cemetery over Labor Day Weekend to say goodbye to my mom and see the new headstones. Thank you so much for all of your efforts to install my sister's headstone in the correct place. It looks beautiful and I think that is the correct place. It was a good closure for all and I feel so much better knowing my sister is remembered in some small way because I know my mom would have wanted it.
Please take care and thanks again,



Thank you so much for all you've done for us. The headstone looks AMAZING! Your generosity will never be forgotten. Thank you doesn't quite cut it =-)

The Thomas Family


I went to Rolling Hills Feb 28th but Rolling Hills had not laid the headstone, but the following week I returned to see my son’s headstone and it is beautiful. Thanks for doing a great job. I will see you all real soon because I paid for my grave site and want you to create my headstone.
Thanks again for such good service and this is my third time using your services.
