A gift to your family, sparing them hard decisions at an emotional time.
It is not always possible to pay respects in person, so we hope that this small token will help.
Offer a gift of comfort and beauty to a family suffering from loss.

Kevin feels with 20 years dedicated to public service and over 30 years experience of funeral service, he could provide the facility, the personal service, and compassion at a time when it is most needed. Kevin always said, “When a family calls, it’s my job to lessen the burden on them for the next several days, regardless of what it takes. I make myself a part of every family I serve.”
