Our Commitment and promise to you

Through the years, our aim has been to provide you and your family with quality service, service that is built upon your trust in us and our dedication to you. And in spite of our long years of serving, we do not take for granted your decision in choosing us to handle your family's funeral arrangements.

In today's world of corporate-owned funeral homes, we consider it a privilege and an advantage to you to be a small, family-owned business. While big business watches the bottom line, we will do what's right for you and your family. You can trust a 130 year old company to do what's in your long-term interests and not settle for the fast and easy way.

We look forward to offering our special brand of personal service at a fair and reasonable price.
