The size and capacity of our funeral home allows for up to 50 guests to attend a visitation and/or funeral service in our facility. However Social Distancing per state mandate must be practiced, while family groups are permitted to sit together, all individuals attending will be required to maintain 6-foot distancing from other individuals and family groups, guest will only be allowed to sit in every other row of seating. In addition, while leading the services all officiates will be required to maintain 12-feet distancing from all attendees.
Finally, this unprecedented period is rapidly unfolding and we are diligently working to cooperate with government restrictions to ensure the needs of our families are being met. Our funeral directors and staff are front line, service professionals. Grief does not take a day off and we will be here for you! Your cooperation in this matter is deeply appreciated as we all make necessary sacrifices to protect and care for those we love.
