Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. Psalm 30:5

Choosing a monument to celebrate the life and to honour the memory of a loved one is one of the most important, satisfying decisions you will ever make. And one of the most difficult. So many factors to consider; size, lettering, design, colour, cost, and the inscription itself. For more than thirty years now, the Verduyn family has been assisting Peterborough and area families with compassion, understanding, and sensitivity in choosing a lasting monument .

Your decision should not be hurried and you need never feel pressured. After all, the decision you make today, will last for centuries.
