Although saying goodbye to a loved one is devastating, it is often encouraged to celebrate his or her life rather than wallow in the despair of loss; enter the glass tombstones of Lundgren Monuments. Designed by Greg Lundgren, the glass tombstones are full of vibrant colors and artistic flair. A beautiful way to pay tribute to an equally beautiful soul, these glass tombstones are a great alternative to somber stone headstones.

By challenging conventional cemeteries, these glass tombstones communicate the light and energy of the departed. Created using such materials as bronze, steel and granite in addition to cast glass, Lundgren writes that a lack of artistry and color in traditional cemeteries "seems grossly out of character to represent the diverse, colorful and individuality of the people cemeteries honor and represent."
