'The endearment of one's heart, when cast in stone, paves the way with love forever....'Valentine's Day is only a couple of weeks away but when the flowers have faded and the sweets have been all but forgotten, sentiments shared in those special times can be forever memorialized in stone!

That's right! Set in the beautiful Gresham Japanese Garden known as Tsuru Island on a Touchstone Commemorative Paver, those precious memories can live on for generations to come. It's a meaningful way to celebrate, remember and honor loved ones and share a special occasion personalized on pavers in the new walkway and Ebestu Plaza in the park.
