Our Staff

Our staff's commitment to you

Our staff is committed to providing support, compassion, information, and direction as needed to all members of our community, their families, and friends who are dealing with loss and grief.

 

As you see several of our staff members carry special designations with their names.  The CFSP is a prestigious designation from the Academy of Professional Funeral Service practice that translates to a dedication, mastery, and proficiency as a Certified Funeral Service Practitioner.  The CPC designation is from the National Funeral Directors Association which demonstrates a mastery of all facets of advance funeral planning as a Certified Preplanning Consultant. The CCO/CCSP designations again hail from the National Funeral Directors Association and demonstrates a mastery in all facets of the cremation process.  Our staff looks forward assisting you in any way they can in fulfilling your unique and specific needs.
