I am so glad we decided to get my brother’s tombstone with Jon. He was extremely helpful throughout the process! He made sure we got the exact design and color we wanted. We were able to get the tombstone expedited and received it in 3 months, where other companies would take up to 8 months for custom orders. Jon is very dedicated to his work and I would recommend everyone to go with his company. You will be extremely satisfied!

I want to thank Jon/Forever in stone for a seamless experience in such a difficult time.
My Family and I are very happy with the headstone you installed for our Mother.
The art, photo and installation were very professionally done.
You were very prompt in answering any questions or concerns I had.
I strongly recommend your services to any grieving family.
Thank you again,
The Gomez Family.

My wife and I went to Jonathan with a special request for a unique tombstone for my in-laws. we brought him two stones from an environmentally friendly cemetery in Half Moon Bay. He was able to customize the stones to give them a natural look that blend in with the local habitat. His passion for detail and creativeness were second to none. We loved his kindness and his ability to listen to our story. He is so much more then a stone cutter.

I was very happy with the hammers that I had engraved for Christmas gifts to our employees. John does very professional work. I told him what I wanted over the phone and he was able to visualize It, and go above and beyond so they came out even better than expected.

Frequently Asked Questions

We've shared some of our most frequently asked questions to help you out!

Can I start the process over the phone?

Yes, you can start the process over the phone. The dimensions and headstone styles allowed by the cemetery need to be determined. The customer may text or email a photo of an example of what they desire. Forever in Stone can email you a quote based on the discussion and the customer can pay by credit card.

I have never had to purchase a monument before.where do I start?

1. It is very important to find out the headstone type and dimensions allowed by the cemetery.

2. You can send a picture of an example of what you would want via email

3. We will set up an appointment where you can help design the headstone with the actual craftsman.

4. We will generate a quote and proof of your headstone so you can be ready to order.

How long does it take to have a monument installed?

We desire to install it as soon as possible. If it is in stock we can often achieve installation within two months. Special orders take 4-6 mos on average.

Will I receive a sketch or proof of my monument design before work is begun.

We will provide a design sample for our initial quotes. Before any work is started we send a proof that needs to be approved to make sure that all inscriptions, dates, and names are correct.
