Don’s beliefs transcend
“There is no way we can diminish the sense of loss that accompanies a death in the family. Our job is to lessen the concern, to simplify the complexities, to handle the details.” Don Estes used this statement as the measure of his professional conduct and we continue his philosophy with every family that we serve. “There is a wealth and honesty and healthy realism in that attitude,” explained Estes, “because it prevents us from getting unnecessarily sentimental or indifferent about our work. Our professional contribution, after all, is to know what must be done and do it efficiently and unobtrusively, with a real sense of concern and compassion for the family’s grief. That’s all we can ever hope to do.”
What do we do different?
We want to offer you the opportunity to commemorate your loved one’s life with a celebration of love. You may further personalize the service by using personal mementos, videos, memory boards and/or pictured service folders. Also, we personally answer our phone 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
Why should someone place their confidence in us?
We are licensed professionals in funeral service. We will discuss the options available, always keeping in mind your tastes, financial situation and family circumstances. We will earn your trust. We will be honest with you. We will let you decide what options are meaningful to you and what you can afford, and offer you the best value in every case.
If someone else tells you, “they are going to save you money”, be sure all costs are included in their offer. You should not have to go out and solicit and pay for facilities to have visitation, a place to conduct a service, personnel to help you direct those in attendance … .
