In addition to funeral services, our staff also provides the following services:



There are many advantages to planning a funeral ahead of time. By pre-planning a funeral, difficult decisions will not have to be made during a time of grieving and stress. You will be able to visit a potential resting site and have time to decide on and compare options. Thought can be made to whether or not cremation is an option you may want to choose. Your wishes can be put into writing to give your family direction when the time for the funeral comes. Our staff will help you plan so that your family can carry out your wishes.

Online Memorials


We can set up an online memorial with a guest book for your loved one. Our online memorials provide information for guests about the funeral services, provide a tribute to your loved one, and allow guests to leave kind remarks that will be posted on the memorial page. The family can provide photos to create a photo gallery for their loved one. By providing information to guests about services, our online memorials help lessen the load on a family during a difficult time. The memorials also serve to pay tribute to your family's loved one.




We will prepare, or assist you in preparing, an obituary to be published in selected publications and on our website for your loved one.


Veteran's Benefits


We will help you secure your potential veterans benefits, such as burial flags, government markers, memorial certificate and a burial plot as well as arranging for military honors at the services.
