“Absolutely terrific, very knowledgeable, and experienced Tony Dugan was easy to work with. He went above and beyond to meet my needs. He was very specific about the layout of the monument and he worked with me as a team to create a design for my wife and me.

The whole company gave a good price and didn’t move on the process without my say so. They were on time, no problems, no complaints. I highly recommend his team, they were prompt at responding as well. It’s a tough process to go through in a time of mourning, but he made it easy, he was very caring and professional.”

“I was completely satisfied with my service. The selection was good, and the employees were great!

While choosing a stone for my wife’s grave I wanted something very unique like her. I found just that, the memorial looks very nice. Tony was excellent to work.”

“We bought our gravestone pre-need, knowing we wanted to pick it out together, plus it would be less emotional to buy it and have it installed before we needed it. Tony was very professional, knowledgeable, and kind. He answered all of our questions and gave us some ideas to consider.

I texted him with some follow-up questions, and he was very quick to reply. He was easy to work with and we have a gravestone that is exactly what we wanted. I highly recommend Tony andDes Moines Winterset Memorials.”

“I made my daily trip to the cemetery today and I was truly delighted with the finished product. It was everything and more than I had envisioned. Thank you for your help and for the wonderful craftsmanship. I will recommend your services to others.”

“I just wanted to thank you again for all your help in showing and telling us all about the designs and how they could be arranged on Becky’s stone. When I first saw Becky’s stone at the cemetery I was awestruck as to how beautiful it is. It is so much more beautiful than I imagined it would be.

I am so thankful to you and your artisans who engraved and prepared the stone, and those who installed Becky’s stone. The engraving is meticulous and beautiful. I know my wife is happy with it. Thank you and your entire team at Des Moines Winterset Memorials.”
