Throughout the years, our commitment to these California communities has remained unchanged even as the funeral home has continued to lead and innovate with high standards of service.

Cremation services

Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and different options. From a direct cremation without a memorial service or a witness cremation to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common choice—and handle all of the cremation arrangements.

"This is the first time we experienced a loss of a parent. Dad wanted to have the funeral as soon as possible for Mom and Julie Tran, General Manager for Cypress View Mausoleum, Mortuary & Crematory and Goodbody Mortuary, was able to schedule our services within just a few days. Throughout the very rushed planning, Julie was exceptional attentive, k

ind and professional in all areas of planning. She is extremely knowledgeable in helping us navigate between the Western and traditional Vietnamese cultures to ensure a proper, solemn and absolutely beautiful service for Mom. Julie was kind, caring and easy to work with. We were so grateful to Julie in making everything possible for Mom and our family during such a difficult time. We love everything Julie did for Mom and already working with her on pre-planning for our elderly Dad. Our heartfelt gratitude and many thanks to Julie and her amazing staff!"
