Treating people like Family and not like a number.
In recent years, there have been many changes in our profession; from large conglomerates purchasing local family funeral homes to an out-of-state funeral home “chain” opening in our area, promising discount prices. The spread of consolidation, mergers and corporate influences affects many aspects of our modern life, many times not for the better. Locally, we can see this with the closing of the Marcellus Casket Plants.
We are pleased to announce that the far majority of funeral homes in the United States remain owned by families and individuals and not by large corporations. We take great pride in our family ownership and believe that in a service like ours, being independent remains the best way to serve our neighbors.
We are not motivated by stockholders, corporate offices or by commissions. We are committed to satisfying the individual needs of the families we are entrusted to serve.
Our family's tradition of providing personal service, fair prices and attention to detail is our foundation. We realize the future of our business relies on this and we adhere to the principals that established our business, more than 50 years ago. The principals of Service, Guidance and Integrity.
It’s our belief that the major events in life deserve to be commemorated.
The remembrance of a person’s life is no exception. Each person will have only one funeral. It is our duty to provide the utmost care to those that are entrusted to us and to provide guidance and personal service to those they leave behind.
A funeral is a time to reflect and honor what was unique about a person and to remember how that person has touched the lives of those around them. It marks the beginning of a journey for their family and friends, as they search for a new identity and begin a transition of life without the one they love. A funeral gives support by gathering and sharing the pain of loss and is an important step in the grieving process.
