Updated Announcement November 3, 2020

To Our Families,

In accordance with the current pandemic guidelines for remaining open and operating as set forth by Governor Kemp, the CDC and local governments, we continue to follow social distancing and sanitation rules in the ways we conduct services and visitations.  We wish to protect the health and safety of those we serve, as well as that of our staff, as we continue to strive to provide the best service possible.  These guidelines will undoubtedly be evolving and changing, at times daily, as we all maneuver through the current conditions.

We will do our best to accommodate any requested service and visitation times.  Please understand that we are trying not to schedule multiple families in the funeral home at the same time and that our staff needs extra time between services to thoroughly clean and disinfect our facilities.

Please check with your funeral director or one of our managers before confirming any dates or times.

Please advise your family and friends who will be attending, that face masks will be required at all times while in the funeral home and social distancing encouraged.

For any public viewing, we will require that the deceased be embalmed if he/she died with confirmed or suspected Covid-19.

Visitations at the funeral home will be limited to no more than 15 people at a time in one of our small visitation rooms and no more that 25 at a time in a large visitation room.

Funeral Services:
Face masks will be required at all times in the funeral home and strongly encouraged at graveside services.  Social distancing should be practiced during all services.

Graveside services will be limited based on the number of people each individual cemetery will allow.  Different cemeteries may have their own rules and guidelines that they will be following.  Your funeral director will maintain contact and keep you updated.

Chapel services will be limited to no more than 50 people.  We have roped off some of our pews to facilitate social distancing.

We have the capability to stream and/or record services for those unable to attend.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have.  Thank you so much for your continued understanding.
