Meeting with a director.

Commonly called “The Arrangement Conference” you meet with a Director to let us know your thoughts, preferences and needs. If you need guidance, our Director will provide information on all your options and suggest ideas.

At the beginning of the Arrangement Conference, you will be given a copy of our General Price List. Every service or item we offer with its cost is contained in it.

You will leave the arrangement conference with peace of mind and knowing the exact costs. We make ourselves readily available afterwards for any follow up questions that may arise.

We realize that every arrangement is unique and personal and can range from the very simple to the extremely complex.

Our directors have many years of experience successfully assisting clients in every imaginable variety of arrangement.

Every one of our directors spend the amount of time needed until you’re comfortable that you’ve reached the right decision.

If gives us great satisfaction when we can alleviate some of the angst you might feel during the grieving experience.

Feel free to call with your questions.
