Personalized funeral services
Conveniently located off the I-8 Freeway, our funeral home is warm and welcoming, and our team is experienced and compassionate. With a large, light-filled funeral chapel and intimate viewing rooms, we can accommodate funeral and cremation services of all sizes. We offer a broad range of affordable options and work with people of all faiths and cultural backgrounds. Our team strives to always accommodate the many cultures of East County; staff members speak not only English but also Spanish and Chaldean. We’re also experienced in the traditions and customs of Native American funeral services. Whether your family is seeking a large traditional funeral with a casket viewing and a catered reception afterward or a small cremation service followed by a champagne toast, our caring professionals will design a memorial that deeply reflect your loved one’s life.
We believe that each person is special, and a unique life deserves a unique celebration. Our funeral directors are experienced in creating one-of-a-kind tributes that celebrate a person’s interests and individuality. They are practiced at finding inspiration in a hobby, passion, style or favorite song and using it to inform a service like no other. From a mariachi band and margaritas to golf-themed decor and monogrammed golf balls, from sandy floors and surfboard decor to an art display and watercolor takeaways, if you can imagine it, we will do our best to make it happen. Whatever you need, we are here to help you and your family celebrate life.
We will also help handle details such as writing an obituary, initiating a death certificate, coordinating pallbearers and creating a multimedia tribute.
Affordable cremation services
We believe cremation should be about memories, not high prices. Cremation is important in certain religions and cultures, but regardless of cultural or religious affiliations, more and more families are choosing cremation over other options. The funeral home partners with a locally owned and operated crematorium and provides several options for cremation services. Get more information on starting prices for cremation.
Some families choose direct cremation without a service of any kind. Some families opt for a traditional funeral service with the body present, followed by cremation. Still others have a loved one cremated and then hold a celebration of life at the funeral home, cemetery or a location especially meaningful to the person being remembered. Let us know what you’re thinking, and we will help you sort through the cremation options.
