General Price List

Price list effective date January 1, 2021. Prices 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 that you desire. However, any funeral 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 funeral goods and services you selected.  

Payment Policy

We understand that losing someone you love is a devastating experience. It can be very traumatic and seriously impact one's judgment. Therefore, it is important to be realistic with respect to funeral expenditures.

One of the most important responsibilities that we have to each family we serve is to bring your emotional and financial needs together, whatever the circumstances may be. We do not want your choices to be more than is affordable, nor less than you would like to arrange. 

We understand the importance of a meaningful service and are here to assist you in any way we can. As part of our consultation with your family, we will discuss the different payment options available. Our goal is to insure that the services and merchandise you select will be in keeping with your wishes, as well as your budget.

 It is our goal to provide your family the finest in services and merchandise at a fair price. We offer a variety of options to fulfill payment. 

All services must have financial arrangements for payment before any public announcement of final arrangements can be made.

Because of financial truth in lending laws, we are unable to provide financing or monthly payment arrangements through our services. You may want to contact your own financial institution to provide options if one of these options does not suit your needs. We encourage frank discussion of these matters, we will attempt to assist you in any way possible. 

You may choose one or a combination of the following:

  1. Payment with cash, check, or credit/debit card at the time of arrangements.
  2. Payment with Life Insurance Assignment – proceeds from valid life insurance policies. Our acceptance of this mode of payment is dependent on the cooperation of the Beneficiary and insurance company. We must have complete cooperation in providing information on the beneficiary, amount of death benefit available, outstanding loans information, cooperation getting claim forms completed in a timely manner.
  3. Note: Due to extremely long processing times and costs to obtain payment we have enlisted the services of a third party firm to process our insurance claims. Their fee to process the claim is 5% of the contract amount. This amount will be added to each contract where the family chooses to pay with a life insurance assignment.

Our Unique Difference

We know that visiting a conventional funeral establishment can cause additional and often unnecessary stress to loved ones. We also realize that making arrangements in a familiar and more comfortable setting can alleviate this added stress. For that reason, we find it best to come to you to offer our service and merchandise choices in the security of your own home or other place of your choice.

Our goal is to provide you with every option of personalization in final care as an alternative to the conventional way funeral and cremation services have been. 

We also believe that making arrangements in a familiar comfortable surrounding allows for clearer and wiser decision-making.

We come to you when you need us the most, offering services and products without you ever having to leave the comfort of your own living room.

Our personalized offerings include the coordination of services at this most difficult time. Assisting you with arrangements, visitation and funeral services scheduled through your house of worship or one in your area that desires to minister to you and your family.

Our current operations are carried out by using a contract crematory and embalming facility so that the savings we realize can be passed on to each family we serve.
