Funerals fill an important role for those mourning the loss of a loved one. By providing surviving family and friends with an atmosphere of care and support in which to share thoughts and feelings about death, funerals are the first step in the healing process. It is the traditional way to recognize the finality of death. Funerals are recognized rituals for the living to show their respect for the dead and to help survivors begin the grieving process.

You can have a full funeral service even for those choosing cremation. Planning a personalized ceremony or service will help begin the healing process. Overcoming the pain is never easy, but a meaningful funeral or tribute will help.

We're still a family-owned funeral home; most of the other homes are corporate-owned. We are willing to work with each family and their financial responsibilities; overspending is not a symbol of caring.


The staff was very very helpful on the loss of our mother. They made the process of filling out paperwork easy during this time and helping us decide what the next step would need to be done. I appreciate the Viewing process being able to have alone time and as much time needed to spend with our loved one. Would highly recommend. Thank you again for the support help and especially prayers
Suzanne and Gary and family
