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!

The Bronze Plaque for our beloved Gilverto Chavolla came out Beautiful. Just an amazing job and really took our breathes away when we all first saw it. I Just want to say how communicative Jon is, very attentive and had it done exactly by the time he said he would. He’s very nice and helpful and responds and gets back to you immediately. Thank you very much from The Chavolla Family.

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.

I don’t know where to begin....first and foremost Jon is super awesome. I was losing hope in who to find that would be able to get the flat marker done before my dads one year anniversary. When I called Jon he answered all my questions and he even came in on a day he had reserved to be with his family which I am grateful for. He was able to get the stone done in time and he did a fantastic job. I couldn’t have found anyone better. Therefore, I highly recommend Forever in Stone. Thank you for the great work Jon truly appreciate it

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.

The owner of Forever In Stone did an absolutely amazing job of my Dad's headstone. Taking a picture of an elevator where my dad worked and engraved a perfect picture along with birds and puzzle pieces .Great Job

Dianna Barrett

Great job on my grandpa's tomb stone !!! Very talented . And it was very beautiful!!!


If I could give more stars, I would. From start to finish, JonLuke was amazingly professional and patient. We had a specific, unusual design in mind and he worked with us to make our vision come to life. His attention to detail was excellent and greatly appreciated. He clearly communicate the timeline and process, leaving us with no surprises or disappointments. During a very difficult time, he was a gift and gave us a gift.

great artistry, great prices for such beautiful work
JonLuke and his team at Forever In Stone are amazing! We recently lost our grandfather and we knew we wanted something custom made for him, but we were not sure how to translate it into a monument. We went to Forever In Stone and were impressed with all the monuments they had created, but we had a vision that JonLuke literally put into stone. He created a 6 foot angel that sits on a bench holding a bouquet of roses. From the design process, to the installation, and the meticulous detail that this monument has, we continue being impressed by the art, kindness, respect, and professionalism that Forever In Stone has provided my family and I. Highly recommend this team 🙌💯

Great to work with and great prices!

This place was amazing from the start!
‘John’, greeted us and made us feel very comfortable right away.
We asked John if they would be able to make a headstone for my grandmother and grandfathers grave, but we had a time frame we wanted it to be done by, realistically our time frame was unreasonable for any shop to make.
But after explaining our situation and the reasoning behind our short time frame, John told us that he’s gonna pull some strings and try his best to make it happen, and he did!
Not only did he make the time frame but he got it done weeks sooner so that the cemetery could have time to get it installed as well, fortunately for us it all got done and installed a week before my passed grandmothers birthday so now my wife and I can surprise the rest of the family with a beautiful headstone on my grandmothers birthday.
We are very grateful for not only the great customer service, but also the quality of work that Forever In Stone did for us.
This company takes pride in there craftsmanship and actually cares about the customer.

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.
