  • Monument Creation Season

    The months of March, April, and May are the busiest months of the year for our monument business. That’s because it tends to be the time of year that people focus on memorializing either those that have passed in the last year or they look toward the future and plan for their own needs. Our company will produce over half of the memorials we’ll do in a year during those three months, so one might expect the reason I like those months so much is because that’s when we’re the most productive. But I actually like it for another reason—it’s the people.

    This is the time of the year when I have the most contact with the public. I get the pleasure of learning about someone’s life almost daily and what they mean to the people in it. I get to see a different side of people I may know or sometimes I get to explore the lives of people I’ve never met. Memorial creation is a time when we focus on the good in someone and how much we value them and look past the shortcomings we all have. It doesn’t matter if the person is/was a doctor, lawyer, teacher, stay-at-home parent, mechanic, farmer, rancher, or a used car salesperson. Everyone is pretty much on equal ground when it comes to how their friends and family view the good in them and how these people touched our lives and made us better even if it was just once. And luckily, I’m the guy who gets to help everyone realize just how special the people being memorialized are.

    It’s not really fair to the rest of the working world, but the best part of my job is that every day is rewarding. To me, every person’s life matters, and we get the opportunity to remember that person’s life with a memorial.

  • Welcome to Our New Website!

    Just a quick note to welcome you to our updated site. We’ve worked hard to move ourselves one step further from “the stone age” and create a place where people can help make an informed decision about purchasing their memorial.

    As you explore our site, you’ll find specific background information about the types and colors of memorials in the “where to start” section. You’ll also be able to find a large selection of current inventory by physical display location or you can even get some ideas of additional shapes and the quality of our work in our “workmanship” area. If you’d like an easy way to customize your memorial, choose midnight black granite and consider doing an etching. Samples of those are available under the “etchings” tab.

    Most importantly, we know that you need to trust the company you are purchasing your memorial from. Not only do we have a written guarantee but we also make it easy for you to purchase from someone you already know. If there isn’t a retail location near you, check our list of 70+ funeral homes to find a representative in your area that your family knows and trusts. They proudly represent us and will vouch for our reputation. If there isn’t someone local or you now live farther away from your family’s cemetery, please give us a call at 1-800-652-1994 and we’ll find another way to assist you. We can do things via phone, email, and mail or even perhaps arrange an in-home consultation from one of our traveling sales representatives.

    While we’ve tried to cover the majority of information a person needs to begin to make an educated decision about planning their memorial, it would be impossible for us to provide every shape, color, design, etc., of memorial on our site. It would also be hard to attempt to list everything about the industry or our business. If there is something you can’t find, want to know if there is something we can produce, or any question about Nebraska Memorials Inc. or one of our locations, please don’t hesitate to contact us at our local numbers or at the home office at 1-800-652-1994.
