These prices are effective as of August 30, 2019 and are subject to change without notice.

The goods and services shown below are those we can provide to our customers. You may choose only the items you desire. However, any arrangements you select will include a charge for our basic services and overhead. If legal or other requirements mean you must buy any items you did not specifically ask for, we will explain the reason in writing on the statement we provide describing the goods and services you selected.

Prior to drafting any contract for goods or services, the responsible party or the decedent's survivor who is handling the funeral arrangements is entitled to receive a copy of any preneed agreement in the possession of the funeral establishment that has been signed and paid for, in full or in part, by or on behalf of the decedent.

This is our basic fee for staff that is charged for our readiness to respond to initial requests for service, arrangement conference with family or responsible party; coordination with clergy, cemetery, crematory, or other parties involved with the final disposition of the deceased; clerical services for preparation and local procurement of death certificate and disposition permit; preparation of obituaries; telephone reception; use of administration and conference rooms and parking and public facilities; sheltering of remains; and a proportionate share of our operating expenses.
