Ever since I can remember, as far back as the early 70's my grandfather and my father would be working around the clock making headstones to be placed by memorial day. The holiday, which is observed every year on the last Monday of May, was formerly known as Decoration Day and originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the war. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who died while in the military service.
Today many people visit cemeteries and memorials to pay respect to there loved ones who have passed away, even if they did not serve in the military. To honor there loved one, they want to have a nice headstone to remember there legacy.
It seems as though when the weather is cold we do not think about the cemetery, but as soon as the weather breaks everyone wants to have a headstone made for there loved ones grave. Many times it does not give the memorialist enough time to place the memorial.
