COVID-19 Update

The CDC regulations for funeral homes are making it difficult for families to say good-bye to their loved ones. We understand the importance of a funeral service and the closure that it brings. We also know that visitations offer healing and comfort to grieving family members and friends and we are anxious to be able to offer that important part of our services again.

Until that is possible, we want to make sure that everyone has an opportunity to “attend” the funeral virtually and feel a little more connected at a difficult time. We are offering a free live stream so family and friends can view the service from home. With the family’s permission we can make the service available for those unable to attend to watch live or at a later time.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those suffering from or who have lost someone due to COVID-19.

Just as a reminder to all – take the following precautions to help STOP the spread of this virus:

Avoid close contact with people who are sick
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and immediately throw away the tissue
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and throat
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
