Permanence If the beauty which the designer gives your memorial be for a short time only, it has defeated your purpose. For the thought which your memorial expresses is not for the present, but for all time. You should choose a material, there fore, which time and changing seasons cannot mar and on which the storms of centuries will beat without harm. In Rock of Ages granite you will find a material as enduring as the Barre hills from which it comes. Heat, cold, moisture, or frost have no effect on it. For untold years it will stand as lovely as when new-spotlessly pure in color and texture-a fitting symbol of the love that was its inspiration. Our Certificateof Perfection, when requested from any memorial dealer, as sures you of our personal inspection through the various stages of completion and is your perpetual guarantee against defective workmanship and material.
