Rest in Peace Little Brother, Granite State Grave Markers Review

In Loving MemoryA few weeks ago I went to my brother’s resting place. It has been over 8 years since I had been there. This due to being out of state. When I lived in Michigan I went to his burial place often. I would sit and talk to him, although it has been 24 years it still hurts like it was yesterday.

When I arrived to his grave site, I was so sad. It was as though my baby brother had been forgotten. I new I had to do something about it, I had to find away to get my brother something to mark he was there. Yes, I know deep down my baby brother is where ever I am looking down upon me and protecting my daughter. However, I still felt sadden that he didn’t have something showing he was there.

I came home and I started doing some research, I wanted to see what it would cost for me to get something out there, I am broke as broke gets, but my brother NEEDED something, and I felt I had to do this for him. Growing up was tough and to lose my brother at the age of 4 was extremely hard. To be honest, I don’t think I ever got over his death, and I am 32 now.

I found a place called Granite State Grave Markers, I looked at some of their work, and seen the prices were extremely affordable. I went and started to check out their designer they have on their site and came up with this…

I was lucky enough to get this exact memorial marker for review, and I have to say I was extremely happy and impressed! I was personally expecting something a lot smaller. When it arrived and we seen what it was I new I had to get it to his grave right away. So this morning my husband and I took it out to mark where my brother lays here on this earth.

Here is what it looked like before I was able to place the memorial marker on his grave…
