Long after the funeral ceremony and reception are over, the memories of a special life live on. Today’s choices for lasting remembrance offer new opportunities to make a statement about the unique nature of that life. They provide a loving tribute that reflects personality, comforts loved ones and preserves family history and heritage for generations to come.
Make a Tribute that Makes a Statement

While Gordon F. Tompkins Funeral Home - Central Chapel will work closely with any cemetery you choose, we suggest you consider our sister Arbor Memorial cemetery, Glenhaven Memorial Gardens.
