Why Choose Us?
Fortunately making funeral arrangements and choosing a funeral home for a family member, loved one or a friend, is not done with much frequency.
Hopefully, these events are well spaced in life. So, when the time does come to perform this task, your decisions are very difficult. Who do I call? What do I ask? Where do I go? What do I do?
Many times, people simply go back to the funeral facility that their family has always dealt with, even if it was many years ago. They are unaware that many things may have changed during that period. Are the same funeral directors still there? Are the facilities as they remembered them? Have the prices changed dramatically? Or even more importantly, were you satisfied with the services rendered the last time you dealt with them? These are all questions that should be considered and asked.
We welcome all of your inquiries. If you have any questions about who to call, or to compare with the business you did call, please call us. Our job is to make it as easy and painless for you to navigate through these difficult decisions. We have vast experience with many customs, cultures and religions. We deal with local, state and federal agencies regularly. We know the requirements of the local cemeteries. We have arranged for transfers of remains to and from any parts of the country and the world. We would gladly give you guidance.
The best endorsement of any funeral home’s services comes from the people who have dealt with them. We urge you to speak to families we have served. They will attest to our highest standards of service and compassion. Our spacious, well appointed facilities offer a peaceful environment in which to celebrate your loved one’s life. Our fees for our services and merchandise are among the most reasonable in the area. We offer dignified tributes in all price levels. Whether you’re planning a ground burial, mausoleum entombment, cremation or transfer of remains, we are here to help.
We welcome your calls, either at the time of a death, or better yet, ahead of time. Discussing funeral plans when a death has all ready occurred is a very emotional experience and decision making can be affected. Why not do it ahead of time, at your convenience, with a clear mind?
If you don’t want to take that step for whatever reason, the best advice we can give you is to discuss your funeral wishes with your family, or whoever will be in charge of your funeral arrangements. From a funeral director’s perspective, there is nothing more difficult than sitting with someone trying to plan a funeral who doesn’t know the wishes of the deceased. Certainly, it is not a pleasant topic, but by making your wishes known, it eases the burden of decision making for your survivors. Do you want to be buried, entombed or cremated? What cemetery do you wish to be in? Do you want your body viewed? What kind of service do you want? What church or clergy person? Do you prefer a wood or metal casket? From experience, we find that these are very difficult and emotional decisions to make when there has been no prior discussion.
So please, start the discussion, or better yet prearrange your wishes yourself. You will spare your survivors the unpleasantness of doing it for you. By prepaying, you can also spare them the financial burden as well. Visit the Plan Ahead section of our website for more information.
