The funeral is a time to say farewell to a loved one, but it is also a time to begin the process of healing. Families have found comfort in our dedication to assisting with all aspects of the funeral service.

Our Mission

It is our mission to provide a personal, meaningful, and healing funeral or memorial experience for every family to be innovative, progressive, and proactive in designing a tribute to a life lived and to accomplish this within the framework of your faith, traditions, and customs.

Then, there is the matter of trust. In a time when emotions are strongly felt, there is comfort in being treated with compassion and respect. This is our commitment to you.

What to Do

People generally do not know what to do when a death occurs.

When a death occurs in a care facility, such as a hospital, hospice facility or nursing home, the professional staff will notify you and the necessary authorities. In other situations, such as when a death occurs at home you should immediately contact 911; police and emergency medical personnel will then determine the appropriate steps to take.

One of the first phone calls you will need to make is to the funeral home you will entrust with the care of your loved one. This first call to the funeral home lets the funeral arranger know that a death has occurred. We will gather information to be able to transport your loved one to the funeral home. The funeral arranger may ask you several questions, including whether your loved one made any prearrangements. A time will be set up to discuss detailed arrangements.

Call or contact other family members and friends.

Call clergy or other spiritual advisors.
