How we approach funerals

Our process starts by listening to you. Inspire us with stories of a favorite music genre, a lifelong hobby or a defining passion. From there, we will work to weave each element into a fitting tribute.

Imagine one last trip to Italy for the person who always loved to travel, replete with regional cuisine prepared and served by our professional catering team. Or, transform our flexible reception area into an elegant evening of cocktails and high fashion in honor of the neighborhood’s most beloved dinner party hostess. Whatever you envision, our funeral directors excel at mastering the details to create a truly memorable tribute.

A welcoming funeral home environment

Your guests will feel immediately welcomed into any one of our three interfaith chapels, which serve celebrants of all religions and backgrounds. Traditional religious ceremonies, burial with military honors and cremations mark just some of the options available to you. We stand ready to walk you through the range of possibilities as you select the perfect fit for your style and needs.
