You cannot stop departing of a person but you can certainly remember them with you as your life passes on. Memorial stones are those stones which are placed somewhere usually in the cemetery to remind people of the deceased. There could be the custom memorial stones where the beloved of the deceased could customize the words written on it which suits the departed soul or they could also choose the material from which this memorial stone will be made along with its size, shape and the writing style on it. however, the most widely used material for the memorial stone is the granite because it is very hard stone and it is very much durable, it maintains its structure and retain its shape.
