About your loved ones and you

Families are often left with the difficult choice of should be done with the loved one lost. There are choices that we are here to help with. These are the where, when, and how. There are so many options available when planning a funeral. The common types that we can assist you with are full-service funerals, memorial services, graveside services, direct burial, or direct cremation. As stated by Jason Ropchan (2014, para. 22) "[a]ny of these options are acceptable means of arranging for a loved one's final home. Keep them in mind as you plan for a funeral".


We have worked with many bereaved families and understand how difficult it can be losing a loved one. Our goal is to make the difficult choices during this time easier on you and your family with our personalized funerals and services. Funeral services today are much different than in the past. Personalization is a new trend that we highly support. "The idea of personalization has resulted in an explosion of unique services that reflect the hobbies, passions and interests of someone who has died. Through personalization, funeral services can be more meaningful (Trends in funeral service, 2015)."
