Because of the continually changing restrictions on the way we gather in public places, we created this page to keep you informed. We want to serve the friends and families of our community in any way that we can because we know how difficult it is staying at home when someone has passed away. We can still do funeral services, we can still hold a visitation and we can still conduct burials in our cemetery. While we cannot gather in large groups right now, we can limit and distance the people inside the building and outside at the graveside service so that we can still provide closure and an opportunity to say goodbye. Trust us, we really miss seeing folks showing up to support a person or family who has just lost a loved one. We know will get back to that soon, but for now we must all keep one another safe and practice social distancing. We are also finding new and creative ways to help one another via video conferences, recording, streaming and online arrangements. Thank you for your patience, understanding and compassion for the families we serve and for our caring staff. We will always do our best to help our community when times are tough.
