Living Memorial Gardens is a 501C-3 organization, making your contribution tax deductible.


Wall Tiles are engraved in sheets of 16, with Capstones in sheets of 6 to 9.  We must have orders enough to complete an entire section of tiles prior to mailing layouts to each family. Once we have completed a sheet or section, each family will receive a layout of your tile for approval by mail, to the address listed on the Order Form. Time of delivery depends on how much of the sheet is sold at the time you buy yours and weather.


The approval of that layout will be the last chance to correct errors.   Tiles will NOT be prepared until the person ordering the tile has signed the layout, approving the spelling and dates.


ENGRAVING ON GRANITE IS PERMANENT.  Once you have given your approval and your tile is engraved, making changes require all tiles in that sheet or section to be redone as well. That cost would be yours.
