Our Services


Services & Personalized Services

Over the past half century, our service offering has evolved in step with the social and funeral industry changes that have occurred during that time. One constant throughout has been our commitment to personalized service to our families. Of course you can depend on us to personally attend to your wishes and desires when the need arises, any time of the day or night. But to us, the word personal means much more in relation to the funeral service itself.

Since no two people are alike, we believe that no two funerals should be alike, either. We can suggest many unique ways to honor your loved one's life in deeply personal ways. For example, caskets are now available with designs that symbolize and recall the life you are commemorating. Displays of personal items help people understand more about the person who has died. You might wish to create a tribute video, or hold the service in a special place. There is so much you can do.

Ask us to help you discover the many ways you can tell the story of a life through personalization.

Before, during, and after a funeral, we are committed to providing compassionate, personal attention to you and your family in every detail of the service...complete service...completely personal

Pre-Planning Services

Our care for you begins long before the need ever arises, with our personal pre-planning service. We believe there are three excellent reasons to preplan your funeral. First, it makes your wishes known well in advance, and assures you that your desires will be exactly carried out. Second, you will spare your family the burden of having to make important decisions at a difficult time. And third, pre-planning gives you the opportunity to prepay the service, protecting your family against price increases, and sparing them the problem of unexpected expense.

Pre-plan now, when you can reflect on your choices at your convenience. Call us about this important matter to set up an appointment with one of our directors. Alternatively you can select the Pre-Planning option on this site for on-line planning or additional information prior to meeting with us in person.

Some people find that they need help and support after the funeral. We maintain a collection of books, brochures, videotapes, and other informative grief resource materials that is always available to the community in addition to the extensive on-line Grief Support resource on this site.
