Roberts-Shields Memorial Company on Williams Drive in Northeast Cobb has created granite, marble and bronze tributes since 1898.
President and minority-owner Brook Bolton said that where a fallen hero is interred is the biggest factor in honoring a loved one. VA National Cemetery in Carterville and the Marietta National Cemetery are exclusive to military veterans and their families.
“The Veterans Administration has a flat bronze grave marker they offer to service members,” Bolton said, “What can be engraved on the plaque is restrictive.”
Bolton shared that there are a number of ways to memorialize a family member. Headstones can be personalized with ceramic covered photographs and stone benches and engraved tiles can highlight special places.
