  • For over a hundred years, we have been a leader in the funeral industry.
  • We set the highest standards for funeral, cremation, and cemetery services at some of the lowest prices.
  • We’re dedicated to serving families of all faiths, cultures, and languages and respect the nuances of each, always taking care to be as respectful and authentic as possible.
  • We have people who can help you in any language you’re comfortable with, for example, Spanish, Armenian, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Filipino and several more.
  • Every life deserves to be remembered––we promise to comfort you during times of sorrow, treat you with the utmost respect and dignity, and we promise to exceed your expectations in everything that we do.


  • Your family and loved ones will feel confident they are honoring your final wishes.
  • May reduce disagreements among family, plus make it more personal to you and your story.
  • The service would be a proper reflection and tribute to a beautiful life and a lasting legacy.
  • The products and services you select at the time of pre-planning will be guaranteed at the time of your passing. This will take care of most of the expenses associated with your funeral.
  • Planning ahead helps reduce stress during an already very emotional and grief-stricken time for your loved ones. Because you’re able to think much more clearly, important decisions are given more time for proper consideration during a pre-need appointment.
  • Without a pre-need plan, your family will be burdened with over a hundred decisions to make within the first 48 hours of a death at a time when they’re already grief-stricken.
  • Planning ahead also allows you to share your final wishes, helping protect your family from additional stress. They will find comfort in knowing that they are honoring your memory in a way that is meaningful to you.
