  • We are the first funeral home in the area to offer a Service Guarantee which assures your family's satisfaction.
  • We have developed a unique Family Care© program to assist families in resolving the many important matters following the funeral: social security, insurance and pensions, credit cards, bank accounts, and property title transfers, just to name a few. 
  • We offer comprehensive Bereavement Services to assist you and your family through your grief experience. 
  • We Facilitate Only One Service or Visitation at a Time. Some area funeral homes will hold multiple services in their facility at the same time while we commit to only facilitate one service at a time in our funeral home. This means your family and friends will have the exclusive use of our entire facility and the full attention of our staff during the service or visitation. 
  • In order to maintain the highest standard of exceptional service we need to know the areas where we can improve. Therefore, we ask for feedback from each family that we serve regarding specific areas of our service. As a result, we can make appropriate adjustments and continue to provide higher levels of service.
  • As a token of our appreciation for the Men and Women who serve in our Armed Forces and those who serve as Police Officers, Firefighters and EMS Personnel, ​we offer a variety of programs:


“If you are not completely satisfied with any of the Professional Services, Facilities, or Automotive Services provided, You will not be charged for that item of service.”
