In the summer of 2017, we lost our baby boy, Max Jr. We were unprepared, scared and heartbroken. Being new to town we knew very few people. We stressed over finding a cemetery to lay Max. The search was hard and sorrowful but we were able to lean on our church administrators for help. They helped us with funeral services and a niche in the parish mausoleum big enough for two and our baby.
After Max was laid to rest, we visited almost daily. By visiting the cemetery we learned that we were not alone. We had a duty to give back to the community that embraced us in our time of need. Every Sunday after mass we headed to the cemetery to do the little that we could to help maintain the grounds. We learned a new perspective of cemetery needs.
Then came the time to have our niche shutter engraved. At first, we inquired with a memorial company to have the work done only to find out that they wanted a price that was higher than what we had paid for the niche and baby’s casket combined. It was shocking! Then we worked through an independent engraver whose price was lower but removed the shutter from the cemetery and stored at his residence weeks without providing assurance that work was underway. We had to retrieve the shutter ourselves and place back on our niche that had been left exposed.
Months went by before we decided to give it another attempt. At that point, we would have engraved ourselves but the equipment was VERY expensive. Again we found another engraver that had to come from out of state to perform the work. He was very professional, performed the work on-site, did a great job and was reasonably priced. The finished product gave us relief.
We discussed ways to give back to the community and the decision was made to start Max Monument Engraving.
