Because We Care

September 2014 Edition  •  By: Liz Markham


What should I expect when I make funeral arrangements for my loved one? 

Often times I hear families finding there to be more details when making funeral arrangements than they initially expected.   We cover information to complete death certificates, choose funeral services and merchandise, write obituaries and discuss many life events and special memories.  We also allow the families to select third party vendors such as florists and musicians; inturn we collect and pay those vendors up front for each family.  This step is done as a service so every family is able to concentrate on their time together instead of being concerned with collecting and paying bills.  All too often funeral homes will require and even demand families to pay for the cost of the outside expenses prior to visitation.  However, our staff views this practice as a complete contradiction to our purpose as funeral service professionals.  Our entire staff is dedicated to serving the individual needs of every family we serve.
