Caring for families at a difficult time is my top priority. Meeting with families and managing our staff to handle and respond to the needs of our families wants and requirements is most important. My goal is to continue what my grandfather and father started by serving all families regardless of what their financial status is, and helping them to say goodbye to their loved one in a respectful manner. 

My advice to families is to plan ahead. Talk to all of your family and find out what they would like to see happen at the time of your death. Remember the funeral and the opportunity to say goodbye is for the living and not the deceased. Although this is not always a pleasant experience it is a healthy experience.
