Forever Memorials is a partnership between Greg and Jennifer Flasko, married for 15 years with three beautiful children, cattle farmers and involved with various community boards and activities. In July 2013 Forever Memorials took over the operations and clientele of a local family operated granite engraving company that had been in business for 40 years.
Jennifer had been trained for 3 years by this local granite engraving company. With 14 years of secretarial/office experience, Jennifer is currently responsible for all day to day operations, creating, blasting, and installing of all stones.
Greg has been employed at Prairie North Co-op for the past seven years, sales/customer service/labourer. With 20 years of 1A truck driving experience, and a jack of all trades, he provides many hours of his time to helping where ever needed.
Forever Memorials was established to engrave and install granite memorial headstones, helping families through the process to create a last tribute for their loved ones. We also do 2nd engravings (final inscriptions) on existing headstones, onsite or offsite (monument is removed from the gravesite, brought back to our shop for engraving, stone is cleaned and reset when completed). As needed we have repainted granite monuments. In future we will be expanding into creating and engraving field stones with Farmyard/Family name signs, pet monuments, etc.
Presently Forever Memorials orders granite monuments, bases, and slabs precut from Quebec. For such sensitive moments, after meeting/talking with our clients Forever Memorials can suggest a monument. Providing proofs and info until the client is comfortable and happy. The process after the contract is signed: we create/prepare characters and images on the stencil, glue the stencil to the stone, cut it out by hand with a knife, sandblast it, paint it, and install the monument in the cemetery.
What gives us the upper-hand? Keeping our prices competitive, cheaper mileage and installation costs, monuments delivered and installed on-time with the outmost of care, and efficient, reliable, patient customer service.
