Meaningful funeral services

Our detail-oriented funeral directors specialize in incorporating life’s distinctive joys into a personalized service. Imagine a cruise-in from a car club before the service, or a live band performing a meaningful set list. Whatever you envision, we work to fulfill every final wish with great care and compassion.

Traditional religious ceremonies, burial with military honors and cremation services mark areas of expertise among our funeral planners. Our chapel warmly welcomes celebrants of all religious traditions and cultural backgrounds. Leave the catering to us, with a range of delicious dishes or your own family recipes. We have flexible space to meet your needs, whether you anticipate a large reunion of friends before the service or prefer an intimate gathering of close family members afterward.
