Community is very important to us, and as such, we have fostered close relationships with churches, hospitals, nursing homes, and cemeteries in our area to make sure your family is treated with respect throughout the process.

We know the process of having a death in the family is foreign to many survivors who are left to settle affairs and estates. That is why, as part of our professional services, we offer assistance after the funeral as well. Our experienced staff can aid with the filing of life insurance policies, providing contacts and directions for assigning executorship, supplying brochures of support, and counseling if necessary, at no additional cost. Often, families find that once the funeral is over, there is another burden in handling tasks associated with beginning life without their loved ones. We understand that part of our care for your family extends to those obligations as well.
Whether or not your loved one is financially prepared, we provide affordable options that will allow a dignified service that reflects the impact he or she has had on lives, while omitting the goods and services you do not want. Gratis options include creating a memorial page dedicated to your loved one, where family and friends can leave condolences, share photos, order flowers, and find service information, as well as the creation of a personalized DVD that the family gets to keep as a memento. Our staff realizes that deaths are not the events families want to spend money on, and many do not have those resources available when the time comes.
