And we do so with a level of care and compassion that our families trust.

Want a dove release? An ice cream social? Personalized golf balls as mementos? A memorial service on the beach? Whatever you need, we carefully plan a celebration of life that is as unique as the life it honors.

"Amazing Staff..."

"Above and beyond experience! I'm a detail oriented person and was extremely pleased with their attention to detail. It was perfectly personalized down to scuba divers floating in the center pieces. My father was in marine construction. All the touches were classy and spirited, not tacky. It really could not have been better. Then there was the staff... every single person there was caring, helpful, and knowledgeable. They all made a horrific time feel calm and smooth. I believe we truely honored my father. I am forever grateful to all of them for their patience and genuine kindness."
