About Us

Focused on Your Needs
Candlelight Memorial Service

As we celebrate the lives and memories of our departed loved ones, join us for an in-person memorial service of music, light and reflection on Wednesday, December 8, 2021, at 7:00 PM. Complimentary Tree Ornaments will be available for pick-up.

The Candlelight Service will also be available for viewing online for those who are unable to attend the in-person event as of Wednesday, December 8, 2021, at 7:00 PM. The link will be available until January 9, 2022. Our hope is that this video will bring a sense of comfort.

Please Note: All attending the in-person event must provide proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and identification prior to entering. We ask for your understanding as we navigate these challenging times together.
