The whole point of creating a memorial is so that everyone will be able to get an immediate image of exactly what your loved one was like, and because of this you will always want to make sure that the memorial says who they were, and what they were interested in. Although you might not want to write too much about your loved one on their memorial stone, you do have the option of having an imaged etched onto it, which means that people would have the chance to get a little more information.
For example, if your loved one was a keen pilot, you may wish to have an etched image of a plane. Stonemasons can be incredibly talented when it comes to being able to create intricate designs, and with this being the case they could even etch an image based on a photo that you have given to them. Doing this gives you the chance to truly make the memorial personal to your loved one, and the image that is chosen is sure to make you smile every time you visit. The perfect memorial is what you will be aiming for, and adding such a personal touch should allow results that you will love.
