About our Monument Website.
Our goal is to assist you in being better informed about what is involved in purchasing a monument for yourself or those that are close to you. We believe that a headstone monument memorializes ones life. It should be a celebration of life and provide an everlasting symbol of homage to those who have reached their final resting place. No two people are the same, so its okay to take the time to ensure your momument is special, unique, and is a reflection of the person being memorialized.
The personalization of a monument can come in the form of a simple cross carved into the front of the stone, to magnificent artists portrait etchings of those interred. Advancements in granite engraving techniques allow for highly detailed images to be permanently carved into a headstone. You may choose to have an image of your favorite pet, automobile, or musical instrument carved into your memorial. In addition to these visual symbols,carefully chosen words provide perhaps the greatest expression of what this persons life meant to their family, friends, and sometimes the entire world. The memorial site is the most important place to permanently express, through words, a message about how they lived, how they were loved, and how they will never be forgotten.
At O.T. Beight & Son's we have a 116 year tradition of providing experienced and caring consultations to those who seek assistance in choosing a perfect memorial that will be cherished forever. Throughout our long history, we have accumulated hundreds of personal Epitaphs. We provide these to you to aid in crafting the perfect words to place on your monument. The collection ranges from inspiring messages, lessons learned, meaningful religous scriptures, famous sports quotes, to expressions of lighthearted humor.
Granite Monuments today come in more shapes, sizes, and colors than ever before. Many choose time tested traditional styles while others opt for more contemporary custom designs that started appearing in cemeteries in the past ten years.
All of these things are what contribute to getting a special monument that is only meant for one person. We stand committed to make this patiently walk you through this process, step by step.
Allow this web site to provide the first step in your journey to choose the perfect memorial. We post our operating hours for each of our three offices along with directions to get you there. Another section you may find of interest is a Glossary of Terms often used in our trade and we have customized to best define the terms that are common to the areas we service in Ohio and Pennsylvania. People have been amazed to learn that there are over 1,300 cemeteries in the seven counties of Ohio and Pennsylvania that we service. In the coming months our Cemeteries listing will be upgraded to include their specific regulations as well as tools to find exactly where each cemetery located. The Frequently Asked Questions page is perhaps the best place to get started. When you are ready, you will find convenient forms to request and schedule a private consultation. Of course you are welcome to give us a call if you have questions. Rarely will you reach an answering machine during our posted business hours. If you do, it means we are in a consultation and will follow up with you promptly. After you have spent some time visiting our website, we hope you will agree that we have just provided yet another reason for why "You'll Remember Us" - O.T. Beight & Son's.
