Meet Cash (-ew, -mere, Johnny-)

Cash is Emily’s English lab! He came into the Smith Monuments family right before the COVID-19 pandemic hit and has taken on the role as honorary emotional support dog for customers (and let’s be serious…us too!) Cash’s favorite things are squeaky toys, tennis balls and meeting new people. Cash is a gentle giant and loves every customer who comes to visit.

Cash stays at home with his dad one day a week, so please feel free to call us to see when he will be in the office!

" I want to thank Emily and staff for helping me through the process of picking out a headstone for my beloved husband who died in July. Emily was so patient and professional. Best of all, I did not have to drive anywhere or shop around. Emily and I did everything over the internet and phone. I was able to see exactly what I was getting with a proof. Smith Monuments also worked seamlessly with our Temple. 5 stars for sure. ”

...Emily was so patient and professional 

- Bill O.

“Emily, one of the owners, treated me with respect and kindness. Perhaps, because she has an art degree, she was able to quickly design a monument honoring my deceased wife. Emily did not attempt to up-sell me to a more expensive stone that would not fit within the cemetery regulations. While there, I arranged for the repair and leveling of my mother's monument and added engraving to my uncle's marker. Visiting this business was a positive experience during my time of grief.”

treated me with respect and kindness.

Went here with my dad right after my mom's passing. He picked out what he wanted with the help of Emily. Shortly after this he passed of a broken heart, My parents were married 75 years. I wanted a better way to honor their love instead of just stating the dates. Emily again helped with the suggestion of entwined rings with a ribbon that read WED 75 yrs. I know my dad would have been delighted. My siblings and I loved the finished stone. It is BEAUTIFUL! Thank You all for your help your expert talents and craftsmanship.

My siblings and I loved the finished stone.

Emily and Trisha at Smith Monuments were so incredibly accommodating and helpful. They truly understand that this is a difficult time for their customers and are so patient and kind through the process. The options for stones are all gorgeous and we chose Bahama blue for my mother's headstone. Emily is in direct contact with all of the cemetery's in the area so she coordinates everything with them which was so nice for us not to have to worry about. Couldn't recommend Smith Monuments more!

The experience I received was amazing. Emily and Trisha helped me through the whole process. Took me a little while to write this review. But I cannot speak highly enough about the experience. It was a very hard time in my life and I appreciate all the compassion, guidance and help with choosing a beautiful monument for my mom and dad. I highly recommend Smith Monuments.

The experience I received was amazing.

Emily was wonderful to work with in getting my parents' monument done. She followed us to the cemetery, walked around with us while we picked out a stone color and finish. She even took a rubbing of a design that we liked and worked with us through proofs to get it exactly as we wanted it. Now that the stone is done and placed, we are very pleased with the results. I highly recommend Smith Monuments.

EMILY WAS wonderful to work with

“My husband and I cannot say enough about our satisfaction working with Smith Monuments. Emily provided a high level of professionalism balanced with such understanding and comfort in our time of need. It can be really hard to make big decisions when faced with tragedy, grief, and vulnerability. Emily held space for us with such warmth, kindness, and empathy and truly listened to what we shared. She took our vision and brought it to life. The installation was handled by Emily's dad and brother, again with seamless professionalism. Because of Emily and her family, our family now has a beautiful monument/way to honor and remember our loved one and we are forever grateful for this comfort and step towards healing/closure. We couldn't be more pleased with the way it turned out. Thank you Smith Monuments!”

“This business is under new ownership. I had attempted to work with the previous owner who failed on numerous times to follow up. The new owner, Emily, has been fantastic. Very pleasant with prompt action, communication and follow-up. I live out of state and had more than one request for her to help with issues outside of her usual service of which she accommodated 100%. 5 stars are not enough. Thanks for everything Emily!”

The new owner, Emily, has been fantastic.
