To help protect our community and those we serve, we will be following safety practices as we navigate this ever changing situation with COVID-19. As of March 23, our governor implemented a 10 person limit at gatherings which includes funerals. We will be working with families to create opportunities to honor their loved ones while keeping them and the public as safe as possible. Please check the obituaries on our website for specific information about each service. Because of the fluidity of this situation, our practices may need to continue to change. We will do our best to update the public to those changes. Working together with our community we hope will help bring a swifter end to this challenging and concerning situation. As always, if there is anything our staff can do to help community members or if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call. May God bless you all.
