Our funeral home also specializes in custom tribute videos, customized music, personalized memorial packages, unique displays to represent your loved one and certified celebrants for those who do not have a religious preference. We also offer unique options such as online streaming of services, candle lighting ceremonies, butterfly releases and personalized giveaways for those attending services. Following the services, we will go over everything we have for you or we will deliver everything to your home locally if you prefer. We try to establish a connection with each family and are available for you even after your services are done.  

Here are the things we think you should know about us…

Family Owned and Operated

Our dedicated funeral directors and staff continue to serve the needs of the community. Our most valuable asset is our reputation and we maintain our success by continuing to receive the trust of the families we have served for generations. As a family owned funeral home, we are held accountable to you.

Advanced Planning

We offer a great opportunity for families to plan ahead so their wishes can be recorded and it also allows them to lock in today’s prices and make affordable monthly payments if needed.

Upfront Pricing

After Care

We offer reading materials and an online database of grief support materials and resources. We can also connect you with a counselor in your area through our partner, DomaniCare. Finally, you will receive an invitation to our annual remembrance program. At the end of each year, before what can be a difficult holiday season, we host a gathering for all the families we have served to receive a message of hope and honor those who have been lost.

Financial Flexibility

We understand the impact the economy has on our community at times. We know there will be families who need our help. We will sit down and discuss a service that will honor your loved one while working within your budget and causing undo financial burden. Please know we are compassionate and willing to help.

Emphasis on Community Involvement

We understand how important being involved and helping in the community is. We sponsor teams, provide lunches for school children, deliver cakes to nursing homes, pick up trash and many other activities. 

Service Guarantee

We strive to provide the best care and offer our service guarantee. If there is any item of our professional services or facilities that you are not completely satisfied with, there is no charge for that item. We take the risk out of selecting a funeral home.

Cremation Difference

Not all crematories are the same. Most funeral homes do not own and operate their own crematory. We own our crematory, so your loved one never leaves our care and we handle the process from start to finish. If you would like to learn more about our process, click here or to tour our facility, click here.

Pet Therapy Dog

We know how difficult grieving can be and try to make coming into the funeral home a more comfortable process. Chloe, our pet therapy dog, sits in on arrangements and works viewings and funerals. She makes people feel more at ease and less uncomfortable. 

Modern Facilities

Our funeral homes are modern, clean and comfortable. Please call us to schedule an appointment and compare our facilities to others in the area or click below to take a virtual tour.


Our funeral homes take pride in being able to serve all faiths and customs with respect and dignity. Even if we are not familiar with a particular custom, we will take the time to learn what we can do to accommodate your request.

Perpetual Improvement

We are continually improving, looking for new ways to serve our families and keep up with the latest technologies. Our staff keeps updated on new products and procedures and are encouraged to try new experiences they feel will help serve our families. We learn from our reviews and surveys how we can make your experience even better in the future.
