Jacob's Stone

At a time of loss, we all turn somewhere.  Some turn to the Bible and that is where we were inspired by the story of Jacob’s journey to the Holy Land. When Jacob stopped for the night, he took “one of the stones at the place, he put it under his head and lay down in that place. Then he had a dream: a stairway rested on the ground, with its top reaching to the heavens; and God’s angels were going up and down on it. The next morning, he took the stone and set it as a memorial.  (Genesis 28:10-22)

A stone that had a stairway to Heaven. How appropriate that we honor the children who have passed with a stone, a marker that leads to Heaven. 

Not all families can afford that stone and that is where Jacob’s Stone can help.  By raising awareness and funding for those who are disadvantaged in our community, we, as a community, can honor that child with a stone.

By working with local Funeral Homes, Cemeteries, and Monument Companies we can help fund those who cannot afford the cost of a marker.

Jacob’s Stone is here to help relieve the financial burden of honoring your beautiful child. It is our hope that the community in which we live will help us to accomplish this mission.
