A gift to your family, sparing them hard decisions at an emotional time.
Accepted customs have changed over time, but courtesy never goes out of style. Here's what we'd like you to know.
You talk about everything, but there’s one conversation you probably haven’t had: it’s time to have the talk about how you want to be remembered.
We are committed to transparency in our business practices. This requires us to be upfront and open about our prices for both services and related products.
And for a business to be truly transparent, the staff needs to follow certain rules or guidelines that keep everyone accountable for their words and actions.
It’s easy to see that if our funeral home pulls this way yesterday and that way tomorrow when it comes to openness, communication and accountability, families would quickly lose their trust in us.
And trust is everything.
After all, the services we provide are unique, and the people we serve are in a very vulnerable position. We consider trust to be an essential part of the relationship we develop with the families we serve.
When It's a Question of Money
For families faced with the death of someone dear to them, it quickly becomes clear that funerals rank among the most expensive purchases they may ever make. A traditional funeral, including a casket and vault, costs about $6,000, although "extras" like flowers, obituary notices, acknowledgment cards or limousines can add thousands of dollars to the bottom line. Many funerals run well over $10,000. And then, there is the cost of a burial plot, and marker. The final costs can be overwhelming for the average family.
Yet even if you're the kind of person who feels very comfortable price-shopping for a new car or home appliance, you're likely to feel very uncomfortable comparing prices or negotiating over the details and cost of a funeral, whether it’s a pre-need or immediate need situation.
Our General Price List
If you’re currently price-shopping for funeral services and products, we encourage you to download a copy of our current Price List. You’ll be able to print it out, and use it in funeral planning conversations with family members involved in making decisions.
We know it may be well worth taking the time to call around to compare prices before committing to any particular funeral home, product or service. That’s why we make our General Price List available to you through our website.
We encourage you to research your options, talk it over, and make the best decision for yourself and your loved ones.
Should you need any additional information, please call us. We will explain all your options thoroughly and clearly, as part of our commitment to transparency...and our commitment to you.
