Corpus Christi, TX (PressExposure) October 23, 2008 -- For most people, pets are not just animals that humans live with in their homes. Pets are loved ones and are considered to be part of the family. Thus, when a pet dies, it is natural for the pet owner to want a pet memorial made to honor the memory of a beloved pet.
To meet the growing demand for pet memorial products, Everlife Memorials has recently launched a new line of pet gravestone memorials. Pet gravestone memorials are grave markers made to be placed in the final resting place of a beloved pet. Pet gravestone memorials come in a variety of forms such as:
â¢ Bronze grave markers. Bronze grave markers are plaques made of bronze and placed on a granite base. They are very similar to markers found in memorial cemeteries. The designs and details on bronze grave markers are done in a process called bronze casting.
â¢ Laser engraved markers. These pet gravestone memorials come only in highly polished black granite. This involves a special laser technology for carving lettering and design, and it only works on the surface of black granite. The designs used on laser engraved markers can be an actual photograph of the deceased pet.
â¢ Natural rock markers. Natural rock markers are popular among pet owners who want to bury their pets in a garden at home. They are made from large natural river stones, and are then engraved with the name and dates of the pet.
â¢ Cremation markers. Cremation markers are like any other pet memorials, except that they are fitted with a container. This container is meant to hold the ashes of the cremated pet and allows the pet owner to bring these ashes when moving to another home.
â¢ Sandblasted pet gravestone memorials. Sandblasted gravestones for pets are made by carving the design and the lettering on a slab of granite with the use of sand and high pressure air supply. They come in different natural colors such as red, pink, gray and black, and they come in the same size as baby headstones.
â¢ Upright pet monuments. Patterned after monuments traditionally found in cemeteries, upright pet monuments consist of the tablet and the base upon which it is placed. The monument is often put on the pet's grave. The tablets can be either sandblasted or laser engraved.
These pet gravestone memorials come in a wide range of designs, with a wide range of prices to suit the budget of any family who had just lost a pet. Other pet memorials included in the Everlife Memorials product line are pet cremation jewelry, urns, caskets and memorial accessories. There are many memorials that a pet owner can select from to cherish the memory of a pet.
