See what others have to say about us by clicking on "about us" and then clicking on "testimonials".  You will never be alone; we will be with you every step of the way. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We have over 90 years of combined service as licensed funeral directors. Our experience, knowledge, and desire to help you make us a strong candidate to do a great job for you, and your family. We offer traditional casket burials, cremation services, and green "environmentally kind" services. We will conduct services at our funeral home, a church, community center, or any other venue you wish that agrees to allow us access. We offer distinctive services for veterans. We are experienced in transferring a deceased in, and out, of the United States. We do this for you with attention to every detail, in comfortable facilities, and at the best price for the services and merchandise selected; giving you a tremendous value for the cost of the service. We are honored by those of you who have, and will, entrust your loved one into our care.

We offer our own in house "Final Salute" to all honorably discharged veterans (with a DD-214 ... copy of discharge) a special casket, or an urn, at no cost.  See our sample funeral plans for details. We make every effort to offer products made in the USA. Thank you for defending our people.

Many of the people we serve struggle with their coping mechanisms when a death has occurred.  We all handle grief differently.  There are many stages of grief and there is no known time period in which all of us move through the stages.  In fact, we are of the understanding, and have personally experienced, going back and forth between stages. Shock/denial is often the initial stage, followed by pain and possibly guilt.  Many people experience anger and will try to bargain to regain what was the old "normal".  Some level of depression, lonliness is very common as you begin to realize that the old normal will no longer be present.  There is a new set of circumstances that help create a new normal.  People will often start to build on that new normal for themselves and will find a certain level of acceptance for what they can not change and open themselves up for what lies ahead.  Ther comes a certain level of hope with working through your grief.  Often, we are able to build strength from our past experiences and build new ones on that foundation which allows us to keep memories of the past alive while not dwelling on the past, and the loss.  It is important to reach out to others during your time of grief and find those who not only empathize with you but can appreciate and better understand your grief because of their experiences.
