Markers and memorials in Corona, California

Although Dad's ashes are in Prescott, Arizona, my siblings and I wanted to get a stone for him in the family plot in Corona. The family had lived there and been such a part of the community for so many years. The stones are old and the cemetery is well-kept and peaceful. We thought it would be nice for him to have a marker where so much of his history lies. His stone is on the far left in front. My mom brought a bird of paradise flower from the garden, and Kathy cleaned the stone and took these photos. The headstones of Dad's parents are near his. In the photo below you can see his marker close up.

When it comes down to making a decision like this, it's hard to know what to say about your father in so few words. Kathy picked out the stone and sent Gary and me information and pictures online, then we all made the choices. It seems to have a look and feel that honors his memory, and we were all happy with that.
