When we wish to memorialize our loved ones, we often seek unique and meaningful ways to honor their memory. Two distinctive and traditional options that many turn two are pillow headstones and slant headstones. These markers offer a choice that departs from the upright while providing a more personalized and beautiful tribute.
Pillow headstones, called pillow markers, are characterized by a gently sloping top reminiscent of a soft pillow. These memorials create a sense of comfort and serenity to families, symbolizing peaceful rest, while the rounded shape adds an element of elegance. Pillow markers' curved surface also allows grieving families to add stunning inscriptions and engravings.
On the other hand, slant headstones, as their names suggest, are characterized by a clean, sleek, angeled appearance. These memorials lean back, offering a dynamic and modern twist to traditional gravestones. The slanted design provides visual interest and an opportunity for creative expressions, such as inscriptions, artwork, or photographs that tell the departed's story.
Both pillow headstones and slant headstones are optional choices for someone seeking to depart from the usual design but still wishing to create a lasting tribute. Our headstones are made from exceptional quality granite and handled with the utmost care and respect. We are immensely dedicated to our craft and quality, and each memorial from us is guaranteed against natural deterioration, cracking, or discoloration for 500 years.
Providing families with the opportunity to create a lasting, customized tribute that truly reflects the individuality of their loved ones has always been our goal. Whether the gentle slope of a pillow headstone appeals to you or the sleek lines of slant headstones, we would be honored to help you find a way to celebrate the life of your loved one in a one-of-a-kind way.
At Legacy Headstones, when choosing a lasting memorial for your loved one, the last thing we believe you should focus on are the details and not the celebration of their life and mourning of their passing. That is why we also handle shipping insurance; just one last piece you need not worry about.
