When my father went to Heaven, my siblings and I could not decide on the headstone that we wanted for his grave. It was a pretty big decision because it was the last time that we would be able to honor our father in that way.The first thing we had to do was figure out where were going to get the headstone, so we did a search for monuments in Newark NJ. This was the first time we have ever had to do something like this, so it was the only way we knew to find the right company to help us out.
We looked at several websites, but it took just a minute’s glance at Haren Monuments for us to know that they were the company we would be using. They offer so many different kinds of headstones, and we were happy that they had so many pictures on their website so we could narrow down the choices. We all had our favorites as we went through the many pictures, and we knew that it was going to be hard to narrow it down to just one. That is what we thought, at least, but we knew as soon as we saw one of the headstones that it was the one for our dad.
It had a football helmet on it, and our dad loved nothing better than watching his favorite football teams play. We would actually schedule family events around football games because he loved them that much. We all got the love of the game from him, so we knew that this football helmet was the perfect sendoff for him. The black marble with his name and significant dates look gorgeous in the script that we picked, and it is obvious for anyone going by his grave that he was one of the biggest fans of his favorite team. We are so grateful that this monument company was able to create the most perfect tombstone for him!
