Here is my son Matt in front of the lovely columbarium in Beaufort, South Carolina that he completed four years ago. You can tell by his grin that he’s pretty happy with the results.
We were there because the church added an additional unit and his job was to put on the finishing touches. Happily he‘d asked me to come along for the ride. You may remember that we did the same thing last April … but it was to the mountains of North Carolina that time.
The pictures show how it’s done. The mason follows a specific plan and then Matt adds the decorative “doors“ … usually in granite or marble.
Each niche is a storage area for the cremated remains and the granite doors are engraved with the particulars just like a traditional gravestone.
Matt loves this type of work and I love the fact that he takes me with him. It’s a win-win situation for us both !
