We Honor Veterans level 3 badge We honor veterans

Our Homeless Veterans Burial Program provides a dignified burial service at no charge for eligible homeless and indigent veterans, ensuring they receive the honors in death that their service in life merited.

Our Public Servants Program provides dignified and honorable burials, at no cost, for career and volunteer law enforcement officers, firefighters and emergency services personnel who fall in the line of duty.

Special programs

We know the loss of a child is unimaginable, and the grief may feel overbearing to parents. For families experiencing a financial hardship during this tragic loss, our team will cover any service-related or merchandise costs the family may have associated with the death of an infant at no expense to the family.

The annual Donate Life Rose Parade Float is the heart of a national campaign inspiring people to save the lives of thousands of recipients and heal grieving families by registering to be organ, eye and tissue donors. Each year, the Dignity Memorial® network sponsors floragraphs—floral portraits made from organic materials featured on the float—that honor the legacies of deceased organ donors. These sponsorships give the honoree's family a special opportunity to honor their loved one and tell their donation story.

The team at Elton Black & Son Funeral Home can also assist with personalization for funeral and memorial services, planned services, guidance with veterans administration, social security and aftercare services.

"I simply cannot thank Anna enough for getting us through a very difficult time. Her compassion and professionalism in helping my family make the arrangements from far away, and her attention to every detail gave us great comfort in knowing that everything was being taken care of by someone who truly cared. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Anna, and please pass on my appreciation to your entire staff for their part in making it all so easy."

"From the transfer of my father from home, all the way to the burial, the staff (Bill, Drew, and Anna) did a wonderful job. They were professional, empathetic, caring, tentative, and constantly asked me if I was ok, and if anything else needed to be done. I know my father would be very pleased with the way his life was celebrated and the dignity he was shown. They truly helped me through a very difficult time and I am beyond appreciative of all of them. Thank you so very much for all of your hard work and compassion."
