A letter to our Valued Clients, who are like family to us:


We would like to address our limitations and position as it pertains to this current crisis, the pandemic COVID-19.

Under the definition stated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, funeral homes are considered essential personnel. Thankfully, we are still able be here for you if the need arises. In the words of funeral director, Thomas Lynch, “A good funeral gets the dead where they need to go and living where they need to be.” This is our intent, in spite of these uncertain conditions. We are still able to ensure that a private burial or cremation is carried out with care. We can still get our loved ones where they need to go. Our priority now is keeping the family left behind safe, along with ourselves, clergy, and our own families at home. Home for us includes those of our staff who reside in the funeral homes.

The Pennsylvania Funeral Director’s Association have established the following guidelines. “Funerals or anything connected to them must be limited to ten people or less and arrangements should be done by phone, fax, email, skype, or Facetime where possible". These steps are necessary to help reduce the severity and spread of the virus among humans. This is also in accordance with the “stay at home” order that has been issued by Philadelphia County and the surrounding areas.

We understand how this will make an already difficult situation even more unbearable but please know that we are committed to being there for you every step of the way to ensure that your loved one is honored in the most beautiful way. We are here 24/7 for your questions and to assist you if the need arises. We are offering private funerals in our funeral home and also direct burial or direct cremation. Once things return to normal, we will be here to assist you in arranging the proper memorialization for your loved one. We are dealing with uncharted territory and things are changing quickly. We will continue to keep you updated as things progress. We appreciate you, we love you, and our hopes are that this pandemic will resolve in the near future if we all do our part


Respect. Honor. Remember.
