**We specialize in MEDICAID Revocable & Irrevocable Trust Accounts

A cremation is supposed to let you say goodbye to your loved ones, not your wallet.

Each day in our cities and towns, families experience the loss of a loved one. Within the following twenty-four hours the remaining family members must normally make several hurried, important decisions regarding arrangements which are often completely unfamiliar. We feel there is a better way and we are encouraging more families to outline the alternatives available long before the need arises. Thus, a more practical and economical decision can be reached when everyone is thinking clearly rather than at a time of grief and emotional stress.

In this era of absentee-owned "chain" funeral and "chain" discount funeral homes, that account for nearly half of all the choices available to you in the capital area, we take pride in being independent and family owned for more than 50 years.

We consider your confidence in our firm a privilege and always stand prepared to help you in every way possible. My personal guarantee -- flexible services and a guarantee to have a fair cost on cremation in the Captial District.
