Losing a loved one can be one of the hardest things you will ever have to go through. It is a time of mourning, sadness, and reflection. And in spite of friends’ and family's best intentions, it’s impossible for anyone to really know your grief. It’s personal to each person who is going through it.

Besides having to endure the grief, there is suddenly the additional stress of even more things to worry about like making all of the necessary arrangements and selecting among funeral homes. Family may be coming into town from far away and need to be attended to. At this troubling time, making decisions and doing all the necessary things like funeral planning is all the more difficult.

What the families we serve say...

In our time of deep sadness Ryan was there. He was beyond professional. He had many obstacles to overcome and he did so. He went above and beyond his duties. My father was a proud man and the way that Ryan treated his funeral only made me prouder of the dad I love. Ryan had the honor guard there at the graveside which was special.

One of the most impressive things was the day my dad died & hospice had called your services. When Ryan arrived he was very patient, courteous & understanding, I have a big family and many family members called and came to the house that day and Ryan had been here for hours, not once did he rush like he had to leave. He just sat with us at the kitchen table and left us start the mourning process. Thank you Ryan and God Bless
