Below are some of the ways we can assist you and your family in making your service more personalized. 

Online Memorials

We can create a customized online memorial for you to share with family and friends, both on our website and connected to our Facebook page. This memorial includes the obituary and any photographs you wish to provide. As part of the memorial, The Tribute Wall allows visitors to post condolences, share memories, upload photos, send flowers, and light candles in honor of your loved one. 

Tribute Videos

We are able to produce a personal photo tribute video that can be played at the service and online or to just have as a treasured keepsake. Simply provide us with the photographs you want to include along with a few favorite songs, and we will transform them into a video celebration of your cherished memories. DVDs or USB formats are available for this lasting tribute. 

Funeral Fund Donations

We recognize that the expense of a funeral can be a burden. We provide the option for friends and family to make monetary donations to help cover funeral costs. These gifts can be paid directly to the funeral home on behalf of the donor. 

Ordering Flowers

Friends and family can easily send flowers to your home or service to honor your loved one. We have partnered with a local florist to offer the convenience of ordering directly from the obituary page on our website. As a family, you can also select flowers you would like at the service. This is a secure way to choose beautiful arrangements from the privacy and comfort of your home. 

Sharing Service Details

We can help reduce the stress of sharing the details of the service for your loved one. We post the dates and times of the service as part of the online memorial on our website. You can then either share the memorial on your Facebook or Twitter page or copy the details from the site into an email or text. Both options give you the peace of mind that you have provided the necessary information to those who need it. 

Daily Grief Support Emails

We offer one year of free daily grief support emails to the families we serve. It is important to us that we continue to comfort our families through the difficult days that the first year of grieving can bring.
