Dear Shila – We hope this finds you and your family (and wonderful dog Kyla) doing well in these challenging times. On behalf of my extended family, I want to say THANK YOU for the beautiful headstone you created. As many of us have been in quarantine in other parts of New England, we finally had an opportunity to see it recently. It is absolutely beautiful. The quality of the granite and the stone carving are first rate. In fact, one of our family members who is quite hard to please, and typically slow to offer compliments, was absolutely gushing with praise. It was a pleasure to work with you, Shila. We sincerely appreciate your warmth, kindness, patience, professionalism, and open-minded approach as we worked to craft just the right tribute to our parents. We are also very appreciative of the flowers you left by the graveside. What a beautiful touch. We will definitely recommend Tribute in Stone to others, and I would be very happy to provide an endorsement or reference if that would ever be helpful to you.
"So incredibly happy with the stone from Tribute In Stone. Shila was amazing throughout the whole process. Losing a loved one is painful, and having to make all of the final decisions is heartbreaking... Shila was caring and compassionate throughout the whole thing. She worked with my sisters and I to make sure we had just what we thought mom would want. If you are faced with the horrible pain of having to find a headstone for a loved one, Shila is definitely the one. Thank you so much Shila, you made an incredibly painful situation a little bit easier."
"Shila was as nice as can be and took her time with us at this time of morning to make sure we got what we wanted and allowed by the cemetery. I will recommend your company to everyone I know!"

"The stone came out beautiful. I love the reflection the fall trees made on the front. Thanks again for everything. You made me felt very comfortable, and not just a customer."

"Shila, you are too much!!! The mum plant is gorgeous!!! So thoughtful – a lovely detail that completes the process of laying our mother to rest. With deep gratitude on behalf of my brothers and families"
"Shila, I want to thank you again for the wonderful experience I had working with you and how nice the headstone looks. My husband Vinny's birthday was a few days ago and it made me feel better knowing that I finally followed through with a proper way of honoring him. Thanks again."
