Family Memorials Inc. Announces Successful Completion of Beta Testing New "imonuments" Sales Software

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 12, 2011) - Family Memorials Inc. (TSX VENTURE:FAM) is pleased to announce the successful completion of beta testing for its new sales software "imonuments". The software program was installed and tested in independent funeral homes and several of the company's own retail locations. "imonuments" exceeded managements' forecasts for units sold by over 70% and was overwhelmingly praised for its ease of use and added value in sales volume by all participants using the program. Scott Kellaway, President and CEO stated, " beta testing was conducted in the first quarter of the year, which is traditionally a slow time for monument sales. I am very pleased with the exceptional sales results and positive feedback on the quality of our "imonuments" sales software. We are also very pleased with how well the software installations and user training were implemented and would like to thank everyone involved in the beta testing. We are looking forward to phase two software enhancements and the continued rollout of "imonuments" in the second and third quarters of 2011."
