As the States begin re-opening in response to the Global Coronavirus Pandemic, some people are returning to their previous normal living standards. Unfortunately, we are now in our new normal as unreal and sometimes uncomfortable as the socially distancing and continuous use of protective masks may feel. *In an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we ask that everyone in attendance: wear a face mask and refrain from hugging, kissing and shaking hands (as hard as it is to see someone you care about and not touch them). Thanks in advance for your cooperation! * It is our responsibility as a Funeral Establishment, to do everything we can in order to honor our beloved Families and to keep everyone as safe as possible. The chapel can socially distance and seat a limit of ten (10) or less people people. All others will be able to flow through and view prior to beginning the Celebration of Life Ceremony.
